To Mr. Bass, Weber, and Zhu,

Do you believe the DevOps perspective and approach to team management is a better fit for a company that architects products using a Microservice Architecture than a traditional, siloed management perspective?

Also, have any of you read Sam Newman's Building Microservices? If you have, how well would you say DevOps from an architects perspective complements or confirms what Sam has written?

The goal of a microservice architecture is to de couple the work of development teams so that they can deploy without spending too much time on coordinating over libraries, versions, and technologies. This is done using message passing as the sole communication mechanism between components. The drawback to using a microservice architecture is that you need to pay careful attention to performance with the message passing.

I participated in a workshop on microservices at the recent SATURN conference (as well as a mock trial where microservices were accused of being an attractive nuisance). The prosecutor was Simon Brown and the defendant was Sam Newman. I was the judge. The output of the workshop can be found here and the mock trial was videotaped and that should be online relatively soon. Sign up for SATURN 2015 notifications to be notified when the video is available.
You showed up just in time for the waffles! And this tiny ad:
