Microservices vs. Code

Microservices: Software that Fits in Your Head @ Info

"Dan North describes a model for thinking about the age of code and argues for replaceability as a first class concern. He also discovers that by optimizing for both replace-ability and consistency one can end up with something that looks a lot like microservices."slides: Microservices: software that fits in your head // Speaker Deck

"What is the goal of software development?

To sustainability minimize lead time to (positive) business impact.

The goal is not to produce software!

Code is not the asset…
- writing code costs 
- waiting for code costs 
- changing code costs 
- understanding code costs
Code is the cost!

Microservices can be a 
Replaceable Component 
- if you choose to optimize for 
replace-ability and consistency 
- smaller is not necessarily better 
- more replaceable is better
