It goes without saying that in order to construct something it has to be broken down into numerous segments. Essentially, it isn't a puzzle if there are not an inordinate amount of pieces. One can construct it in numerous ways depending on how it is cut. Therefore, it makes sense that in a Microservice architecture environment, it provides the developer(s) multiple ways to piece the application together. And, they are able to do it independently from one another. The key is to construct your segment to the best of your ability. Ultimately, if a piece does not fit, you find the logical spot for it as opposed to forcing it into position.

This thought process has permeated throughout the technology landscape for many years, and it has taken on different forms along the way. At the moment, the architectural process that has gained momentum is Microservices. There has been a lot of success in developing enterprise applications in this fashion. The ability to develop in a modular form has resulted in more flexible and stable applications.
The end result is a staggering increase in the amount of job postings that require one to have a background in Microservices architecture. We first started to see Microservices show up on the radar back in 2015. However, since that time, we have seen the interest in this skill jump over 10x. Most importantly, the growth has been fairly consistent. We have seen this kind of overall growth in other areas, but generally there is a drastic jump at some point. Not necessarily the case with Microservices. Even though the numbers are impressive, they do not display a sort of fad sensation that one might see in other areas of the technology landscape.

What one can conclude from this steady rise in the need for Microservice experienced engineers is that it displays the traits of having longevity. Of course, nearly everything in the technology space does not last forever. And, that is a good thing. However, it does not appear that this form of development will be going by the wayside any time soon.
How to find home based linux job
With the technology advancements that keep on evolving, locating a home-based Linux job is a lot of Linux engineers dream. Unfortunately, there is still a majority of engineers that work in a typical office setting, but the opportunity to work out of the house continues to increase over time. After all, why not? Not having to commute seems to make a lot of sense. If all is done right, the efficiencies that can be gained by telecommuting are significant, for both the employer and employee. Therefore, since it is of great interest to find this work arrangement for many engineers, how does one find such a position? The goal of this article is to hit on some high points that will hopefully help one locate this type of role.

Job descriptions can be very puzzling. Are they looking for strictly a developer, or do they want someone that can develop but also maintain their systems? Sometimes it can be very tricky to separate the wheat from the chaff. Corporations have their marketing and human resource teams come up with, what they deem to be, snazzy ways to attract top talent. Such terms as “rock star” and “guru” are a few that are frequently used. For some rhyme or reason, it is their belief this is an effective recruiting strategy. And, it may be. I do not have all the analytics to know one way or the other.
