HTTP and JSON have been and still are widely used in micro-service-based architectures as one of the most efficient means of communication, but is it really true?

Currently, with our scalability and speed demand, the ReST model is lagging behind! Let’s get to know the technology that will make the ReST completely obsolete, welcome to the era of gRPC. In this talk we’ll build a complete gRPC API with a server and a client to demonstrate how this can be a powerful tool.
