Moving legacy C# code to the cloud with Thriftly

Apr 9, 2019 12:39:00 PM / by Carey Payette posted in Cloud and hybrid cloud, Thriftly

The process of modernizing legacy applications into a service-oriented architecture is a long one. For many, the logic that is required for new, modern systems already exists in the form of code that has already been written, fully tested, and used for multiple years in the form of thick-client Windows applications. The process of starting over, defining cloud APIs and re-implementing the logic and data tier can prove to be time-consuming and error-prone.

Understanding the relationship between APIs and microservices

Feb 19, 2019 1:41:00 PM / by Mike Mackrory posted in API development, Microservices, Thriftly

For the past couple of years, microservices have been a hot topic of conversation in the field of information technology. The hype around microservices is that they make everything better, and as an engineer who works on an application, I’m an enthusiastic promoter of the philosophy.
When properly implemented, a microservices architecture offers many benefits. However, this approach isn’t right for every organization or application. In this article, we’re going to look at microservices in more depth, and discuss how you can use an API-based approach to implement and manage them. We’ll also discuss the advantages of this approach, and some of the reasons why you should or shouldn’t consider microservices.
