Abstract

Google deserves a lot of credit for imagining (and popularizing) what we now call "microservice architectures." That said, hindsight is 20/20, and many of the mistakes we made at Google are being recreated by the rest of the industry today. What did we get wrong about microservices at Google, and how can we apply those lessons today?
