I’ve heard a lot about microservices lately and I am trying to get an understanding of it. How does one apply the ideas and concepts? Martin Fowler in his keynote (link below) said microservices is a subset of Service Orientated Architecture. "If we take another look at our layered architecture, we might see that while there is tight coupling/high cohesion top to bottom, sometimes we can identify an element of loose coupling across vertical slices.
