Rules of Engagement

  • Cloves CarneiroJr.

In this chapter, we'll go over what we call our "Rules of Engagement,” which is a set of principles and best practices we find valuable to follow to ensure an efficient microservices environment. It would be correct to state that this entire book is a collection of what we consider best practices; but the principles we outline in this chapter are a foundation of many of the tools and design ideas we will discuss throughout the book. We have six Rules of Engagement for successfully building applications in a microservices environment. Those rules are based on our years of experience, and are phrased from a developer's point-of-view.
