Are PHP Microservices a Thing ?

So cloud native architecture does not  apply only to .NET or Java . Cloud native is a secular term that applies to applications in any language including PHP. The concepts and 15 factors of cloud native can apply to any language.

So PHP Microservices are indeed a thing. There is even a book published Mar 17 https://www.packtpub.com/mapt/book/application_development/9781787125377/1

Not only can you write cloud native apps in PHP you can also practice domain driven design in PHP. The book Domain-Driven Design in PHP is an excellent resource to get started.

Please also checkout True Tales of publishing PHP Microservices.

So with a combination of cloud native 15 factor implementation techniques and monolith decomposition driven by DDD you too can achieve nirvana with PHP microservices.

PHP microservices can be pushed to PCF using the PHP buildpack.  For practice take a look at the getting-starter guide to easily push PHP apps to Pivotal Cloud Foundry in under 5 minutes.
