re: Best Practices for Event-Driven Microservice Architecture VIEW POST


What's your view on the idea that microservices is only advantageous for applications with enough complexity?

For low-complexity apps, it suggests that it's better to start monolith (applying loose coupling principles) and only migrate to microservices if really needed in the future.


Yes I definitely agree with this. It's best to avoid premature optimization and unnecessary abstractions. A low complexity app is the ideal design if it fits your business requirements. A microservice architecture adds complexity and latency over method calls, so you need to have a benefit that offsets that.
