You’ve decided to move away from your monolith and decompose it into microservices. This is a great idea but the road is laden with traps.

  • How do you split up your relational data while not losing consistency?
  • How do you actually decommission parts or all of your legacy system, rather than run multiple services in perpetuity?
  • What are the tradeoffs of different approaches, like REST vs. RPC?
  • How should you design your infrastructure to support n services?
