About the webinar

The use of an API gateway and the move to microservices are two of the most important trends in application development. But are they similar, or different; complementary, or contradictory? In this webinar we discuss the advantages of an API gateway, the advantages of microservices development, and how and when they can work together.

The NGINX Microservices Reference Architecture (MRA) uses three different network architectures, with service mesh as a fourth. We describe how an API gateway relates to each of these network architectures and how to reduce rework if your application needs to evolve from one architecture to another.
