What is the Microservice Design Canvas?

The Microservice Design Canvas provides a high-level design template for defining and scoping microservices. By using the canvas as a starting point, designers will focus their microservice design by identifying and capturing only the essentials.

It is used across many industries, including banking, hospitality, universities, and SaaS vendors. We use the canvas in API and microservice workshops to help attendees through the microservice design process.

Templates, instructions, and examples are offered in both PPT and PDF format.
