Using concepts based on intelligent agents and microservices, several frameworks aim at making development of distributed and concurrent applications easier. Agent oriented programming frameworks are, in general, less popular than the ones dedicated to the development of microservices. Mastering the complexity of distributed and changing envi- ronments can be a painstaking challenge. Hence, a pragmatic approach is required to simplify the development of distributed applications. This paper identifies the challenges on this area for further research.
