About "To Microservices and Beyond"
Microservice architectures have generated quite a bit of hype in recent months, and practitioners across our industry have vigorously debated the definition, purpose, and effectiveness of these architectures.
In this session, Matt Stine will cut through the Microservices hype and examine some very practical considerations:
• Not an End in Themselves: Microservices are really all about helping us achieve continuous delivery
• Systems over Services: Microservices are less about the services themselves and more about the systems we can assemble using them. Boilerplate patterns for configuration, integration, and fault tolerance are keys.
• Operationalized Architecture: Microservices aren’t a free lunch. You have to pay for them with strong DevOps sauce.
• It’s About the Data: Bounded contexts with API’s are great until you need to ask really big questions. How do we effectively wrangle all of the data at once?
Along the way, we’ll see how open source technology efforts such as Cloud Foundry, Spring Cloud, Netflix OSS, Spring XD, and Hadoop can help us with many of these considerations.
