Hello J Richard Rodger!

What are some example applications that are built with micro-services? Can micro-services be built in any language? Do you think this book could keep print outs on my desk from flying around?

Regards,

Kim Gordon

Microservices can be written in absolutely any language. I believe that JavaScript was chosen because of its strong ecosystem and how accessible and readable it is to other developers.

Hey Kim,

To answer your important question about papers - No! it's a relatively short book, sorry
(short books are better - only say what you have to once)

Language is not really a factor, as Godfred says, although some language platforms like Js and Go are lighter weight and thus easier to deploy as containers etc.

But consider that Erlang OTP offers what many consider to be a microservice-like platform, so there are many takes on this idea.
