A single engineer should be able to create and manage a microservice. Too often, however, an engineer gets bogged down in the mechanics of the development workflow: figuring out how to deploy a service to Kubernetes, how to test a service, and so forth. In this section, we discuss best practices and approaches that a single engineer (or team) can adopt to quickly build and manage microservices.
