Microservices has been quite the topic of conversation this year, with a rapid rise of interest. But although this architectural style is often a useful one it has its challenges, which can easily lead a less experienced team into trouble. Testing is a central part of this challenge, which is particularly relevant for those of us that consider testing to be a central part of effective software development.

My colleague Toby Clemson has responded to this question by distilling his experiences into an infodeck that explains the various testing techniques to use with microservices and when to use them. The first installment outlines the anatomy of a microservice architecture and explains the role of the first testing technique: unit testing.
