Things I Wish I‘d Known Before I Started with Microservices
Join Stephen Judd, Lead Consultant and OpenCredo, as he shares his lessons learnt from implementing several microservice-based architectures with clients small and large.
“There is no single approach to building microservices; while a number of common aspirations, goals and techniques have been recognised across different initiatives, the variation in approach is substantial. Having worked on a number of microservices implementations, we have recognised recurring patterns and challenges; these we have distilled into a set of pragmatic questions and concerns that developers might face in a similar context. In this talk we discuss the practical aspects of these questions, illustrated with examples from our work.”
The talk will take place on Thursday 4th February at 11:00. More details of the talk can be found on the conference website, and Stephen can be found on twitter as @cyberbliss.
The Business Behind Microservices: Organisation, Architectural and Operational Challenges
Join Erich Eichinger, Lead Consultant at OpenCredo, and Daniel Bryant, Chief Scientist at OpenCredo, as they share their experiences from the organisational perspective of introducing a microservice architecture.
“Join us for a whistle-stop tour of the business and people challenges that we have experienced first hand when implementing greenfield microservice projects and also breaking down monoliths. We’ll look at ‘divided companies’ vs ‘connected companies’, determine the actual impact of conway’s law, briefly touch on the lean startup/enterprise mindset, dive into change management without the management double-speak, and look at the lightweight processes needed to ensure the technical success of a microservices implementation (e.g. DevOps, CD).
The main lessons we’re keen to share are from observations on a couple of microservice transformation projects we have been involved in – some where teams have been cross-functional and aligned around strategic objectives, and some where they haven’t. The latter proved much more challenging, as we saw single domain models being created and shared around the codebase, unclear service/context boundaries, and ultimately people tripping over each other.”
The talk will take place on Wednesday 3rd February at 17:00. More details on the talk can be found on the conference website, and Erich and Daniel can be found on twitter as @oakinger and @danielbryantuk, respectively
