About this event

Microservices-style applications require asynchronous task processing. But how do you organize, execute, and manage complex sequences of tasks with inter-dependencies across stateless services?  Join us to learn how Netflix solves this problem, at scale! To get the evening started, we will also have lightning talks from HyperGrid, Nirmata, and Turbine Labs on topics across containerization and infrastructure automation.


6:30 - 6:50: Refreshments and Networking 
6:50 - 7:00: Introductions and announcements
7:00 - 7:45:  Lightning talks 
7:45 - 8:30:  Netflix Conductor 

Lightning talks:

• Simplifying the Containerization of Legacy Applications: Amjad Afanah, VP of Product at HyperGrid

Selecting a Container Registry for Production Deployments: Ritesh Patel, Founder at Nirmata

• Improving the interface between your customers and your infrastructure: Mark McBride, Founder at Turbine Labs

Netflix Conductor : A microservices orchestrator

Conductor is an orchestration engine for microservices. The Content Platform Engineering (CPE) team at Netflix utilizes Conductor to orchestrate a number of business processes driven by asynchronous orchestration of tasks executing on microservice applications.

Conductor was open sourced recently and is available under Apache 2.0 license.


In this talk, we will explore some key features and look under the hood at the design of Conductor, and how we scale it to handle large workloads that can span from few seconds to months.

Speakers: Viren Baraiya and Vikram Singh
