This editorial article is a part of Software Development Month of Technical.ly's editorial calendar.

How do tech leaders get enough knowledge to make good decisions on the move to microservices?

Comcast’s (newly promoted) senior director of software development and engineering, Michael Winslow, took to the virtual Developers Conference stage last month to share how he transitioned his web services team to microservice architecture.

But first, some term talk: The 2019 RealLIST Engineers honoree and BENgineers leader loves DevOps but not its name. He prefers CAMS — culture, automation, measurement and sharing.

Phew. Now onto the less controversial stuff: the why and how to move your team to microservices, including what workplace culture considerations must be in place first. (“Burnout is real,” Winslow reminded us.)
