This week I presented at the Node.js Wellington meetup around the tooling we have setup at Fairfax for running micro services for Node.js apps.
Essentially we have a workflow that uses Codeship for CI/CD and AWS Code Deploy for deployment. Our apps follow the principals of the Twelve-Factor App making each service simple and consistent to deploy.
This talk covers the reasons for this particular approach, the technologies used and offers a look at our stack including infrastructure and the deployment pipeline.
Whilst this talk is Node.js specific, we use the same technology for both Node.js and Java microservices and will shortly be standardising our Ruby applications on this approach as well.
