Setting the Stage for the Present
When you sat down with this book, you were probably fully caffeinated and ready to dive into learning about the world of generic pipelines. You made it through the introduction and rolled up your sleeves for Chapter 1 when bam, you were served with a healthy dose of “this is how it is.” Sorry to rain on your parade, but a lot of companies still work that way. Maybe you are beyond that, on a journey of exploring microservices and how they can improve writing and deploying applications. Alternatively, maybe you work in a shop that is already developing microservices, but struggle with how to manage all the pipelines. It is all very individual, but the good news is we’re here to help.
