I really enjoyed this article, though I thought the side effects would be negative. Service oriented architecture seems like a great idea, but I feel like due to the speed & ease of writing a monolithic app makes it a good first choice, but then the transition can be painful.

I thought this article was generally pretty good, except for the point “Each of these small services talks via HTTP to the other services.” which is not true in the general case. Often, you want your services to to talk via some other protocol.
