A few days ago we pondered the question of whether you’d like to carry 500 lbs or 1,000 lbs.
You don’t get any special powers or machinery to use.
The truth is, you’ve probably lifted tons in your life—just not all at once.
A microservices architecture is sometimes derided as “complicated.”
I think it’s fair to say that the architecture will have more overall complexity than a big ball of mud monolith would.
However, overall complexity isn’t what limits your team’s ability to delivery value.
How much complexity do they have to hold in their head at any one time?
That’s what’ll break your progress.
