Micro Technologies for the Development of Macro Applications

We've probably all heard of microservices, but to reiterate, microservices are division of the backend part of the application into several smaller, standalone services. Each of these services has a specific purpose or satisfies a specific business need (payment, sending e-mails, etc.). How many services we will have depends on the application itself and the topic of the application, as well as bottlenecks, which we recognize at the very beginning.
