Just released, a free O’Reilly book on Reactive Microsystems: The Evolution of Microservices at Scale. Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

  1. A refactoring may not change behaviour or, through inaction, allow behaviour to change.
  2. A refactoring must obey the orders given to it by Martin Fowler, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A refactoring must continue its own existence as long as such continuation does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

Strategies and techniques for building scalable and resilient microservices to refactor a monolithic application step-by-step, a free O'Reilly book. Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.
