Microservices has become a catch-all term in the industry used to describe anything from architecture patterns to actual service implementations.

In this post, I’ll provide an overview of three kinds of Microservices that I have observed in client architectures: Domain, Integration, and Unit-of-Work. I’ll also discuss specific examples of their purposes and a method to implement each one.
