About this event

Hello Microservices enthusiasts,

I am excited to announce our next meetup on November 15th.

We have new host this time – Turbonomic. Thanks to Asena @ Turbonomic for arranging the venue and logistics. Sylvia Isler will be our guest speaker talking about Turbonomic's decision and transition from monolith to microservices. More importantly, she will share how they got everyone on-board for the re-architecture project and the non-technology changes you need to adopt along the way. 


Thanks to the Turbonomic team for offering to host our event at their office in Boston.

Meetup Agenda:

Introduction: Ajit Umrani (Ex-President of Assembla, currently looking for new opportunities) 

Featured Guest Speaker:  Sylvia Isler, VP of Architecture, Turbonomic


Microservices at Turbonomic

In this presentation, a microservices case study and lessons learnt will be presented. First we discuss some architectural principles that we adopted that are essential for developing microservice-based systems. We then discuss how Turbonomic, in anticipation of scalability-related pain points, took the plunge to evolve the monolithic architecture of its flagship product into a system based on composable microservices.  Lastly we'll talk about the often over-looked organizational changes and intra-mural ’selling’ required to embark on the rearchitecting monoliths into microservices.


As Vice President of Architecture at Turbonomic, Sylvia Isler is responsible for the overall system design and runs the platform development team. Prior to joining Turbonomic, Sylvia was a senior engineer and software architect in the finance industry.
