Microservices: A utopian mystery
10:20 - 11:10
Microservices promises faster development, deployments, scaling and all the goodies you always wanted but never had. Highly scalable services like Netflix and Soundcloud have successfully integrated micro services not just as a way of application development, but as a structure of how the organisation runs. Over the past year, I have worked on a transformation project which was inspired from success stories of these organisations and adopted micro services to help move away from a monolithic system to deliver value to end users quickly and reliably. We were often faced with cultural, technical, and geographical challenges around harnessing the goodness of micro services which is very different from adopting them in a startup environment.
In this talk I will share my top lessons - these include both successes and failures - which were often difficult to digest. Most importantly, I will share the successes that at the time, looked like failures.
I work for ThoughtWorks, as a Lead Developer, consulting with leading global organisations, helping to solve problems. I am passionate about programming, which is not just a job but a hobby.
