Async Communication and Microservices: a perfect marriage?

Recently we did some research into the intricacies of communications in a microservice architecture, and we want to share our insights with you!

For those who cannot wait for our findings, we are strong believers that asynchronous communication is the way to go. The use of synchronous communication should be limited to only specific use cases. If you want to know how we reached this conclusion you will have to read through the entire blog. But be aware that getting this aspect right in your architecture is crucial as a microservice architecture heavily relies on communication between its components (microservices).
