A guide to the common steps we've observed in breaking a monolithic application up into microservices
One of the first introductions product manager might get into the world of architectural design is the concept of microservices. But what exactly are they?
What do you as an architect or developer actually do to refactor a monolithic application into microservices?
As organizations strive for greater agility, their software development teams often turn to microservices for flexibility and efficiency. Amazon, PayPal and Netflix, among many tech supergiants, have been leaving their monolithic structures behind and are moving to microservices architectures. For executives looking toward their own transition, a team at the Boston Consulting Group offers a clear, authoritative introduction to the technology.
A guide that picks out the best information resources for the microservices style of software architecture.
Going directly to a microservices architecture is risky, so consider building a monolithic system first. Split to microservices when, and if, you need it.
Microservices need a different approach when it comes to testing. The microservices test pyramid is more complex. Here's how to use it.
An in-depth description of the microservice style of architecture. Applications designed as suites of independently deployable services, governed in a decentralized manner.

There’s no dearth of information or best-practices or books about how best to test software. This post, however, focuses solely on testing…

How does Refind curate?
It’s a mix of human and algorithmic curation, following a number of steps:
- We monitor 10k+ sources and 1k+ thought leaders on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
- In addition, our users save links from around the web using our Save buttons and our extensions.
- Our algorithm processes 100k+ new links every day and uses external signals to find the most relevant ones, focusing on timeless pieces.
- Our community of active users gets the most relevant links every day, tailored to their interests. They provide feedback via implicit and explicit signals: open, read, listen, share, mark as read, read later, «More/less like this», etc.
- Our algorithm uses these internal signals to refine the selection.
- In addition, we have expert curators who manually curate niche topics.
The result: lists of the best and most useful articles on hundreds of topics.
How does Refind detect «timeless» pieces?
We focus on pieces with long shelf-lives—not news. We determine «timelessness» via a number of metrics, for example, the consumption pattern of links over time.
