A while back, Sam Newman wrote a short but sweet blog post about breaking up monolithic systems into more manageable pieces (using Apache Kafka, of course ) so that you can make your data work for you!
If you, like me, want to dive a little deeper into this content, I’d totally recommend the following:
- Sam’s Kafka Summit 2020 Keynote on the Tyranny of Data
- Either of Sam’s books on the subject – “Monolith to Microservices” and “Building Microservices” (Now in its second edition!!!)
- This awesome Streaming Audio podcast with Sam and Tim Berglund where they discuss the “Monolith to Microservices” book.
This is great stuff, and I hope to hear what all of y’all think!
