Hands-on experiment building microservices and cloud native applications

As has been mentioned, this game was built to be extended.

Creating rooms or non-player characters or quantum-entangled items is not really the point, though it has the advantage of giving you something to build that isn't so closely related to traditional patterns you already know.

The point is for you to experiment with microservice architectures and strategies for building resilient distributed systems. We have some walkthroughs to get you started:

Create a new room
Create and deploy your own services! Containers or build packs, kubernetes or cloud foundry. What about Heroku? Whatever you're curious about, this is a perfect way to play.
Choose your own adventure
Choose from a list of follow-on activities to improve the scalability and resilience of your room, or to create new inter-service interaction patterns.
