Hi, I have close to two years of experience with full-stack web development but we were developing a monolithic app deployed on on-prem servers. I have been learning about microservices, docker, containers and their orchestration for a while now and I want to implement something to put on my portfolio.
I thought about developing two microservices, say, one with NodeJs and one with Spring. One would ping the other and using Kubernetes I’d try to load balance etc. but this doesn’t seem like anything useful in real life.
I’d appreciate new ideas and thoughts, as well as tutorials or documents on how to do this with best practices.
