In this blogpost we’re going to use the photo-sharing application that has been demoed during MariaDB’s M|17 conference. The sources of the application are available for download on Github. The purpose of this blog post is to demonstrate using a MariaDB database server in your stack when building microservice applications. During this post we’re going to talk about what microservices are, the architecture of the photo-sharing application, bootstrapping the application, and scaling parts of the application. The code demoed in this blogpost could be used as a starting template for building your own microservices.
