Your Ortelius Journey

The Ortelius microservice catalog has been gaining immense popularity as it brings an open source, breakthrough solution for organizing microservices. So the question is how can we jointly contribute to the success of both the catalog and the idea itself and continue to build on a solution that prepares us for microservices at scale. This article demonstrates a few of the ways you can kick-start your journey for the good of all.

The Development Path

If coding is your thing, you would fit into the ‘Champion’ group. This Group focuses on architecture and coding. To get involved, the very first step is to create your account on GitHub if you don’t already have one, and then visit the Ortelius GitHub Project page.

The next step is to review the Code of Conduct and evaluate the subcommittees as listed below post ant then create a pull request to register your name with your interests:
