07 architecturalist papers: How micro-services made picking a programming language different

Unfortunately microservices create a good excuse to create a mess of random languages all over the shop. And it is not nice, and the longer applications exist the worse it will become.

Very often companies end up with services nobody wants to touch because they are written in obscure languages nobody knows and nobody wants to spend an effort to learn.

So the major rule should be the same as in 2004 — they less languages are used in the company, the better.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
