   REST API vs gRPC, which one should you use in breaking a monolith


Remote Procedure Invocation
Intermediate level
Apollo Tuesday from 16:15 til 17:00

You heard of "new thing" called gRPC and promises that it will solve all issues for you, so now you are not sure if you should use it for breaking up your monolith to Microservices. If it is good for Google it should be good for you also right?

On the other hand, you have been using REST API's for some time now, at least as a consumer, so maybe this would be better approach in Microservices waters, or would it?

Which one to chose and which one will fit your use case better?

Join me in this talk were I will try to explain both approaches, good and bad. I will give some points and tips, which will help you in understanding better which one will be better for you. By doing this I will also share some best practices for both approaches
