Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

Each year we publish stats on the size of the release train and each year the release train gets bigger and bigger.   I just spent some time on Ohloh, calculating the number of lines of code we plan to ship with Indigo.  According to Ohloh that number is 45, 792,297.

Ohloh also calculates the cost of creating the project.  For the Indigo project, Ohloh is estimating $721,470,167. Pretty sweet, since it is all open source licensed.

I am still missing 10 projects, so these numbers will go even higher. :-)
