Transactions and Microservices on the rise!

Our team spoke about how transactions and microservices can be used together over 3 years ago. Since then there have been a few people continuing to suggest there's no role for transactions. However, we're also starting to see more people talking about the same things such as at DevoxxUK and elsewhere. That's great! We'll keep pushing Narayana in this space and if you're interested then get involved with us too!
