Both Choreography or Orchestration are fascinating patterns, they are fantastic ways to manage the interactions, communication, and behavior between your Microservices and often there is not a one size fits all approach you should take.
Just because you have taken one of these approaches in a previous solution does not mean that it the right approach for your next, hopefully, this post will be able to give you a high-level overview of what you should consider and help you to manage your Architecture decision.

When trying to find instructions on how to publish into Github Pages, I found that is was not very clear when trying to publish a static site.
I thought it would be good to write a guide on publishing a static site into Github Pages and hopefully eliminate any confusion in trying to do so.

Do you enjoy your work culture?
Who doesn’t want to show up to work and be in an environment with like minded and talented team members (ability, passion, desire not skill-set).
Do you enjoy your work environment?
Who doesn’t want to be part of a team that is recognised for the quality that they deliver as well as being seen as industry leaders, has the abilities to use technologies that will give the best outcome and help grow your teams skill-set and interest.
Do you want to easily be employable?
Who doesn’t want to be perceived in the communities they are part of as someone others would love to work with.
All that sounds great, right, and they are benefits that happen when working in a high performing team, however truthful speaking I think high performing teams are very rare, though while I think they are rare, I think it is also very important to strive to be a high performing team, not just for others but for yourself.

RESTful is a key term that is popular in the market.
Previous services use to be created implementing JAX-WS with the communication protocol being SOAP, various implementation were and are still used but from my own experience they all have fallen short especially in the area of code generation, these technologies included Axis 1 & 2, Apache CXF as well as the java generation tools.
Since RESTful implements JAX-RS with the communication protocol being HTTP, it has allowed for rapid development with the ability to send data in different formats, typically it is JSON however it can also be send as XML or even plain text.
Both technologies do have their advantages and disadvantages however my preference of choice for many reasons is RESTful.
