This is a rating on a scale from 1 to 5 to indicate how much demo coding the session will contain (as opposed to slides) – 1 means no code demos, and 5 means nothing but.

Advanced Level
This is a rating on a scale from 1 to 5 to indicate how advanced the session is (in terms of the specific topic that is being covered) – 1 means that it’s introductory, and 5 means that it’s aimed at attendees who already have significant experience in the relevant area.

The Architecture of Microservices

Coding Level 1
Advanced Level 1

Microservices is one of the latest software architecture styles that promises to deliver benefits such as ease of testing, fast and easy deployments, fine­grained scalability, architectural modularity, and overall agility. It is undeniably one of the latest trends in the software industry, and everyone seems to be jumping on the bandwagon to quickly embrace and adapt this new architecture style. Unfortunately, as many companies are painfully experiencing, microservices is a fairly complex architecture style that is not suited for all applications and environments.

In this product and platform-agnostic architecture workshop you will gain a full understanding of the microservices architecture style and what hybrids and alternatives exist, which will help guide you in making the right architecture and design decisions for your organization. You’ll learn the core concepts of the microservices architecture style, the primary benefits and drawbacks of Microservices, how microservices differs from service­oriented architecture, and hybrid architectures such as the popular service­based architecture.

I will then take a deeper dive into some of the design considerations with microservices, including techniques in distributed transaction, distributed logging, contract versioning, identifying services, creating data domains, microservices reporting, inter-service communication, and security design considerations. I will finish the workshop by looking at some refactoring techniques from moving from a monolith to a microservices architecture.
