Frustrated with Java’s limitations, REA’s Residential team moved to Scala in 2013, to take better advantage of the benefits afforded by FP. After almost two years and 13 […]

Warner Godfrey, Matt Fellows & Terrance Benade – Continuous Delivery & Microservices in a Polyglot Environment

The virtues of continuous delivery are widely understood and accepted by organisations which value fast feedback cycles, reduced risk through incremental delivery of smaller changes and the ability to respond quickly to external factors. Furthermore if microservices are part of your architecture, then the ability to rapidly deploy multiple components of a system become increasingly […]
