About this event

Following up on our successful first meeting in January, we have scheduled our next meetup bring fellow Microservices enthusiasts together on April 6th. We have made a few changes to the format based on the feedback we received. 

We have a great guest speaker, Richard Li from Datawire.io, who is working on developing open source tools to make it easier to build resilient Micorservices. 

We have a great location. The Microsoft NERD center in Cambridge, MA will be hosting our meeting. 

This meeting will be limited to the first 50 guests to RSVP. 

Meetup Agenda:

Introductions: Ajit Umrani, Assembla

Guest Speaker:  Richard Li, Datawire.io

Are you thinking about microservices? Are you wondering how people are developing microservices? Microservices are a powerful concept that can enable continuous delivery and faster velocity, but it's also a different way of designing and thinking about systems. This talk will discuss common design patterns for microservices, and discuss the infrastructure you'll need to deploy for microservices. We'll also give a preview of open source tools we're building at Datawire that aims to make all this easier.

Follow up Discussion topic: Technology stack available and missing tools for building applications using Microservices concept. 

Interest Groups: We will break into smaller interest groups based on the topics suggested by members.
