Design of a Microservices Chaining Gamification Framework

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 1161)


With the advent of cloud platforms and the IoT paradigm, the concept of micro-services has gained even more strength, making crucial the process of selection, manipulation, and deployment. However, this whole process is time-consuming and error pruning. In this paper, we present the design of a framework that allows the chaining of several microservices as a composite service in order to solve a single problem. The framework includes a client that will allow the orchestration f the composite service based on a straightforward API. The framework also includes a gamification engine to engage users not only to use the framework, by contributing with new microservices. We expect to have briefly a functional prototype of the framework so we can prove this concept.
