Nice concept, but the devil is in the implementation details. This Refcard turns concepts into code and lets you jump on the design and runtime scalability train right away – complete with working Java snippets that run the twelve-factor gamut from config to service registration and discovery to load balancing, gateways, circuit breakers, cluster coordination, security, and more.
