In a typical monolithic application, you have a large application talking to a large database. In a microservices architecture, instead of building a large application, we build a number of smaller applications, known as microservices, which exchange messages among themselves. While the process of migrating from a monolith to microservices can be tricky, we will examine why you would want to make this change, the challenges of this migration, how feature flags solve those challenges, and best practices to tie it all together.
