Functional Microservices
Difficulties in delivering monolith application lead software practitioners
> to move to microservice architecture. However many microservice projects
> simply repeated the mistakes made in the monolith applications, resulted in
> same poor quality deliveries with harder to diagnose issues.

This presentation proposes that microservices can be modelled as functions,
> where purity can be maintained by a) adopting CQRS concepts and modelling
> internal states as reduced over incoming commands; and b) pushing side
> effects towards system boundaries. With services as functions, a group of
> services working together therefore can be modelled as functional
> compositions.
