When hearing about a new programming language, one might learn it is imperative, strongly-typed, dynamically-type-checked, object-oriented, and garbage-collected. If they have used multiple languages in the past, they now have a pretty good view of the basic constraints of the language.

When it comes to communication systems, it's not as much common knowledge the design choices made and the impact they have.

Learn where gRPC fits and how its design choices impact your service design.
