One of the core promises of microservices is development team autonomy, which should, in theory, translate into faster and better decision making. Microservices, cloud-native, and Kubernetes are a new approach and culture shift, and there’s a lot of good ways and bad ways to approach the challenge. One of the keys to success is enabling a consistent developer experience for each microservice from day 0, which is critical for unlocking team autonomy and development velocity.
A developer experience is the workflow a developer uses to develop, test, deploy, and release software.
Engineering a good inner and outer dev loop is key to a great developer experience and unlocking the potential of microservices.
