Indeed, when does this become mainstream? I found the largest QC is about 72 qubits.
Authors - how many qubits would be required to do create say a calculator?
How many qubits would we be looking at before it can join the main stream?
What are some contemporary thoughts about the timelines when this is going to be bread and butter?

That is fantastic.
The teleportation bit was quite some news, now googling around that to read about that.

Hi Authors,
Glad that such a book is being brought out.
Do we have to have prior knowledge of QC or does this start from the basics?
Thanks

Are we able to use existing knowledge and apply the same, say will we have heapsort or mergesort using QC or will all those be historic and we learn all new algorithms?

I thought all encryption would be broken by any quantum computations.


while this is true, there would quantum encryption coming up

Is there a way to practice the algorithms learnt from the book and see it work? I mean to run it on a simulated quantum machine, or on (say) a cloud based trial quantum service, am not sure if there is one?

Hi Richard,
Would be great to know your views on this. Thanks in advance.

Thanks Ty,
Indeed we too had the same issue, it slowly started to feel it is not micro any more. There was ample ambiguity on how to define the boundary of these. There should be a better way.

There is a catch here, as I was alluding to in the other thread. When webservices was the new kid in town, (the established ones being RPC, EDI etc etc.) UDDI was the mechanism for this. So as a concept it was there, and actually was way ahead of its time but the implementation was that hard; today on the other hand Zookeeper is way more implementation friendly,usable.  Certainly this is not something we come to know due to Microservices.

That's is a good question John, this is something I am also interested in, does the book reflect on the various frameworks that are available?

I think, in a way most standard open source framework would suit microservices, because that it is technology independent is purported as the one of the advantages, nonetheless, a dedicated framework could possibly bring benefits like at managing these in production scenarios, their versioning etc.

Hi Richard,

I assume that this book is for beginners and also for people who are already using microservices.

Does the book help in understanding the differences between microservices and webservices, where to use them where not? or suggest design guidelines etc?

I have always seen webservices and micros as different points on the same continuum. Microservices suffers from the same problems that we used to face when we tried to fix the canonical view or to fix the scope of the webservice. Becuase we can make it very granular, so that the microservices are independent, but then we increase the network traffic and surely the operational cost, supplier costs.

The service discovery that was cited in chapter 2 is like the UDDI purported by IBM which did not take much flight, again thought of previously.

The way I read it was that "100 lines of code" was another way of classifying what would qualify as microservices. I find it strange for the matter that I wonder what business level functionality can we achieve there ?

Congratulations Winners, thanks to all who participated and thanks to JavaRanch team for providing the platform to do this.
There are some newer papers with bit different results, with similar trends though, however, yes that would be research. Thanks Campbell for all the discussion.
