Moving Beyond Request-Reply: How Smart APIs Are Different

Integrating microservices or other components is hard, as it involves taming distributed systems. New API technologies are great, but can't magically solve all underlying challenges. This talk distills real-life experiences around typical architecture patterns. You will understand why you have to carefully think about boundaries and responsibilities of all your components. Further you will see why balancing orchestration and choreography is essential to avoid chaos. We also need to talk about idempotency, long-running and event-driven services.
