When you’re moving fast, things will break more often. It’s little wonder, then, that with a microservices approach you need to pay close attention to ensuring the safe, yet speedy change to APIs. The idea of “consumer-driven contracts” has been percolating for a long time. The idea is to shift the “power” in the relationship between the provider of APIs and the consumer of those APIs more to the consumers. In this episode, I talk again with Marcin Grzejszczak on this topic and we discuss how the newly GA’s Spring Cloud Contract enables all this thinking.
