    The game theory course from Stanford was really good though.

    Micro service architecture..
    It’s not like it isn’t already common practice..

    @SortOfTested I don't mean gamification or game theory is wrong or doesn't works. What I mean is many individuals just use this word without even understanding what it is or in few cases they don't even have a product yet but they want to gamify it

    @just8littleBit yes every startup don't need to be built with microservice architecture. If you really want it use could functions. And anyways if the codebase is good braking a monolith up later should be that hard

    Not because it's useless, far from it, but because so, so, so many people misunderstand it or form opinions without actually studying it (or at least reading up the basics).

    Is it though? My jury is out. Most people write a lot of tiny services, but they don't own a vertical tech slice of a business concern (the contexts, they are not bounded). From what I've seen most people just relabel sedimentary layers as "micro services" and call it a day.

    Anyone considering MicroServicesTM needs to watch this first and learn what it meeeaaaans, it requires buuuuyin on an oooorggganizatioooonal leveeeeeel:

    tldr/dw: If you share persistence, or ui with anything else, you're not a microservice. :D

    @SortOfTested yea, many idiots out there but to me it seems in serious companies it’s usually done right.

    AWS Technology. It's a service not a technology.

    I have two.

    "Blazing" (as in, "blazing fast") and "Cloud" (especially "cloud native").

    I dismiss any code that uses those phrases to describe itself.
