Information about Denver Microservices

We are a community of like-minded software engineers that come together to decouple monolithic and spaghetti architectures. Microservices architecture is enabled by a spectrum of tools categories but is primarily an architectural approach to system design that also requires considerable organizational and cultural adjustment to execute successfully. This meetup is for people interested in architecting, designing, deploying, and maintaining mircoservice based architectures.
