LaSalle Software v2 is intended as a free open source micro services architected software. The purpose is to offer the basic common features needed to get a basic services environment up-and-running in order to lower the initial costs to clients. Another intention is to solve the issues related to creating and maintaining a micro services environment instead of revisiting them each Install. It will use the Laravel Framework v5.6, OAuth2 guidelines and Json Web Tokens.
The initial set-up will have a front-end web application with an administrative login area, an internal API Gateway, an internal Authentication Service, and a Blog Service. Later will be an Event Service (for scheduling meet-ups!).
A Service is an independently deployed API. A micro service is a small API performing a specific function. My assumption is that each LaSalle Software service will deploy in the public internet, and not within a VPN.
