Microservices are all the rage these days. Fortunately, the Ruby language provides several ways to implement, including services written on Ruby on Rails, Sinatra and even on Rack. Even more fortunately, Ruby developer Paul Dix has written an excellent introduction to implementing and deploying microservices in Rails, Sinatra and Rack: "Service Oriented Design with Ruby and Rails."
Join SF Ruby this coming June 2, 2016 for another installment of the Sf Ruby Book Club where we'll be discussing Service Oriented Design with Ruby and Rails.
If you haven't yet attended an SF Ruby book club, you might be missing out. Discussions usually proceed in round table form, everyone is encouraged to contribute. You don't need to be an expert. Not everyone reads every book all the way through. Some people only skim an entire book, some read a few chapters and skim the rest, other focus deeply on 1 or 2 chapters.
