Microservices are the new fad in software architecture, and while I think they are generally the correct philosophy to take with service design and composition, the pattern can certainly lead you quickly into trouble. If you don't know what Microservices are, I recommend reading the article written by Jame Lewis and Martin Fowler on the . . .
Let me save you three hours of annoyance.

AngularJS - Communicating Between Controllers - Part 4
This is the 4th and final discussion of Communicating Between Controllers in AngularJS. In the previous three posts, I discussed using nested state, PubSub, and the router as mediums for passing state between controllers.

A more general way of communicating between controllers is to use Angular's
AngularJS - Communicating Between Controllers - Part 1

It's a great question and it's often not obvious to new Angular users. The answer is a lot more complex than one might think (but the . . .
Super simple Nagios checks via Dropwizard Tasks.
On a project I'm currently working on, I had a need to create a framework to expose Nagios health checks within a Dropwizard service. You can find the framework and a
