Make Software Architecture Choices That Maximize Value and Innovation "[Vernon and Jaskuła] provide insights, tools, proven best practices, and architecture styles both from the business and engineering viewpoint. . . . This book deserves to become a must-read for practicing software engineers, executives as well as senior managers." --Michael Stal, Certified Senior Software Architect, Siemens Technology Strategic Monoliths and Microservices helps business decision-makers and technical team members clearly understand their strategic problems through collaboration and identify optimal architectural approaches, whether the approach is distributed microservices, well-modularized monoliths, or coarser-grained services partway between the two.


Moving Beyond Monoliths and Microservices

Microservices have become more than a buzzword and are now viable alternatives to monoliths, which makes understanding why and how they should be used more important than ever. Thinking strategically about software architecture has to be the cornerstone of any software development. Vaughn Vernon, author of “Strategic Monoliths and Microservices: Driving Innovation Using Purposeful Architecture” (Addison-Wesley Signature Series (Vernon)), and James Higginbotham, author of “Principles of Web API Design”, discuss purposeful architecture, why events matter in software and much more.
