Microservices refer to smaller applications that are interconnected and form the architecture of more complex software. The advantage is faster development and the ability to create and test individual microservices in isolation.
The work on each microservice runs in small development teams, making the collaboration and the whole process of creating the service more efficient. The development of complex software is also divided among teams with a clear task – to create a specific microservice.
However, microservice architecture comes with its negatives. For example, one team’s developers may have to wait for another team’s microservice to be complete before they can continue. In addition, linking code at the end of the development process is also problematic, which can lead to higher latency between microservices.
