Title: What is Microservices Architecture?
Author: Smartbear
Summary: Microservice architecture, or simply microservices, is a distinctive method of developing software systems that has grown in popularity in recent years.  In fact, even though there isn’t a whole lot out there on what it is and how to do it, for many developers it has become a preferred way of creating enterprise applications.  Thanks to its scalability, this architectural method is considered particularly ideal when you have to enable support for a range of platforms and devices—spanning web, mobile, Internet of Things, and wearables—or simply when you’re not sure what kind of devices you’ll need to support in an increasingly cloudy future.

Title: Microservices
Author: Martin Fowler - James Lewis
Summary: The term "Microservice Architecture" has sprung up over the last few years to describe a particular way of designing software applications as suites of independently deployable services. While there is no precise definition of this architectural style, there are certain common characteristics around organization around business capability, automated deployment, intelligence in the endpoints, and decentralized control of languages and data.

Title: Best Practices for Microservices
Author: Mulesoft
Summary: Today's business environment is extraordinarily competitive. No company – no matter its size or what industry it is in – is safe from disruption.
