Meetup of the week: Decomposing a monolith into Microservices with the Open Web Interface for .NET in New York, NY
How do you build a microservice? What technologies does the .NET realm offer for us? And what if you don’t want to deploy each service independently? In this talk, Dennis Doomen will show you some of the pros and cons of microservices and how you can leverage OWIN and .NET to move your monolith into a bright new future.
