Microservices are a popular software architecture where the application is structured as a set of loosely coupled services. These services can be deployed and scaled-up independently. Microservices are adopted as a way of scaling the development organization by aligning the development teams with specific services.
Microservices remain a high-discipline architecture that brings challenges of its own. This section explains how you can monitor code, dependencies, and team coupling to succeed with microservices.
Tightly coupled microservices are a cardinal sin. In particular when those connected services are owned by different development teams; the coordination costs in the organization tend to soar as new features and fixes require work by multiple teams.
Use the concept of Change Coupling to uncover logical service dependencies in the context of the development teams.
It’s challenging to know where to start. Fortunately, a hotspot analysis can help. Hotspots identify the most volatile parts of your monolith; the parts that are worked on the most by the development teams.
By guiding the migration from hotspots, you pull risk forward and improve the parts of the codebase that bring the largest and fastest benefits.
CodeScene fits every codebase. You only need to decide if you want to run CodeScene on your own servers, or just and run CodeScene as a cloud service. Fully automated.
