Posted on Wednesday, Jan 18, 2023

Show Notes

#194: Whether you are doing greenfield development with microservices or are doing brownfield development migrating monoliths to microservices, there’s one thing that you have to get right when testing those microservices, otherwise you will fail. What is that one thing?


If you don’t get the culture right, no amount of technology will fix the problems that you have now or in the future.

In this episode, we talk with Darko Fabijan, co-founder of Semaphore, about the process and structure you need to follow when migrating away from monoliths and how to make sure that you get the culture right in order to succeed in the long term.
