  • An attempt to remove the need for experience in microservice granularity choices - February 8th, 2023, 14:30–15:30 CET
    • Description: Open webinar of the Microservice Community's Research Group.
    • Invited Speaker: Famke Driessen (University of Twente)
    • Talk Abstract: A prominent research gap in the field of microservices is the lack of tooling to identify service boundaries and evaluate the granularity of a system. Currently, practitioners do this based on their experience and insight without making use of any frameworks or tools, except for some Domain-Driven Design (DDD) concepts. DDD is described often as an approach to determine microservice granularity, but neither DDD offers concrete decision support, as the guidance for determining service boundaries is not much more than to identify a bounded context for each domain concept. The necessary finetuning of service boundaries is still done based mainly on experience, which is not always available in teams new to microservice architecture. There is a need for approaches to monitor granularity metrics over time, to make the process of evaluating granularity more objective. The version control data of an application not only allows us to go back in time and assess the evolution of an application in terms of granularity, but also provides us with potential granularity metrics such as development coupling and deployment coupling. The research discussed in this webinar identifies several granularity metrics, and aims to investigate how based on those metrics the most optimal granularity of a microservice architecture can be achieved for a certain set of requirements.

  • 10th European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (ESOCC 2023) - October 24nd–26th 2023 CET, Larnaca, Cyprus
    The European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (ESOCC) is the premier conference on advances in the state of the art and practice of Service-Oriented Computing and Cloud Computing in Europe. The main objectives of this conference are to facilitate the exchange between researchers and practitioners in the areas of Service-oriented Computing and Cloud Computing and to foster future collaborations in Europe and beyond.

Obtaining the Support of the Microservices Community

The Microservices Community is actively involved in the organisation of events around (but not solely dedicated to) Microservices.

We welcome inquiries from the organisers of activities compatible with the Community’s goals and its code of conduct to get our support and collaborate in their organisation. We invite prospecting organisers to contact the Microservices Community Communication Group at the address

Microservices Community Collaboration Badge

Since June 2018, the activities and events organised in collaboration with the Microservices Community are recognisable from the Microservices Community Collaboration Badge (shown on the left) present in their website.
