Microservices can provide a strong business benefit - you can become more competitive and respond more quickly to market needs, if you figure it all out. To help the community that is forming around the topic, we launched a weekly newsletter on microservices.
According to the NGINX survey, nearly 70% of organizations are either using or investigating microservices. Around 1/3 of those are currently using them in production. The concept proved to be successful, but it does matter when do you start using microservices. Getting started with a monolithic architecture can make things easier in the beginning. This allows you to move fast with your organizations. As your application (and your team) grows, moving to a microservices architecture can be a sustainable long-term solution to keep productivity at the same level as before.
The Microservices Weekly newsletter is delivered to hundreds of developers each week. If you feel like you want to check it out, you can subscribe here.
