    Informative and clear explanation. Thanks.

    Great explanation of what really is a microservice

    Great video summary.

    Can we do a deep dive with how to do an application using a naming service? Maybe a super simple example where you have a page, with two text boxes & button, click the button, it adds two numbers together using a GET request via the naming service [which two calculator endpoints, running in some container are registered] to find what servers are running an adding service? I know I'm needy but if you put out an example I am happy to follow :)

    PS: I drink the Microsoft coolaid so if you show me which one will play best with MVC and can run in a private cloud I'll be the happiest.

     Great talk, can't wait for the next episode.  If we can get Mark to talk for 25 mins on Service Fabric that would be awesome.

    Good Start ! kind of more deep n to deployment. It would be great to see some examples

    So what are the processes as far as task manager is concerned? (at the process level).

    I've been reading and learning about Microservices for a good while and never really understood why & how Microservices was solving the monolithic application issue.  After watching the video, I now understand Microservices and why to use Microservices and it's technology and implementation. 

    Even though this is a video by Microsoft and with Microsoft employees, it provides a vendor agnostic explanation of Microservices.

    Here's a very good blog post by Mark that mirrors the video:

    Microservices: An application revolution powered by the cloudA very good read after you watch the video above.

    I feel this explanation is a bit revisionist.

    N-teir Architecture was created to let application scale horizontally. There have been a number of precursors to Microservices that were available from hosting functionality in MTS containers and using proxies to very simple RPC call.    

    I think we have to be careful not destroy the lineage of our ideas otherwise we lose the real reason we are evolving them.

    I've been using Mark's genius tools since before the turn of the century wondering why they weren't native to Windows? I still use his tools to this day and wonder why aren't they native to windows???!!! However, I never knew what he looked like until this video. 50+ years old... handsome... buff, looks like he's about 40.

    Seth, this video was good. However, you should do a video on how to be more like Mark. One that asks questions like "Do you color your hair?", "What is your workout and diet schedule compared to your nerding schedule?", "Are you taking any supplements?", "Did you make any deals with the devil?", "Are you secretly a super hero?". Mark kind of reminds me of an older version of Barry from "The Flash."

    When I look at some nerds, I think, "Oh yeah, it's obvious why that guy is a brilliant..." whatever. Guys like Mark makes me wonder what is going on here? I need to work more on "myself".

    Classic! Every video featuring a whiteboard presentation should begin with the presenter going through 2-3 markers before finding one with ink. This is the reality today.
