The topic of this episode of the New Relic Modern Software Podcast is microservices, addressing questions like:

  • What is a microservices architecture?
  • What are the best use cases for microservices? How do you monitor them?
  • What’s the trade-off between flexibility and complexity?
  • How can microservices help future-proof you against changes in your business needs?

We even address the cultural implications of microservices!

To discuss these issues, and much more, Modern Software Podcast host Fredric Paul welcomes an amazing pair of guests with deep knowledge and expertise—and some strong and perhaps contrarian opinions—on microservices.

Serial entrepreneur Richard Rodger is CEO of VoxGig, a global conference and event SaaS company based in Waterford, Ireland. He’s also the author of The Tao of Microservices, published by O’Reilly Media.

Sean Carpenter, meanwhile, is a Principal Technical Evangelist for New Relic in Portland, Oregon, who’s been working with microservices concepts for more than a decade.
