Microservices: Lessons from the Frontline

YOW! Nights 2014

Are Microservices gaining momentum? Looking at the interest in Microservices in Australia at the moment, it is evident that this approach to Service Oriented Architecture is making waves.

I shared our insights and experiences with 500 interested attendees at completely sold out YOW Night events across Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. These talks revealed the core lessons Thoughtworkers have learnt building a variety of systems with Microservices architecture globally. They aimed to help viewers identify Microservices and their counterparts, and guide them on where to use them. The talks deliver a series of practices for technologists to build, test, deploy and operate a Microservices architecture.

The world of software architecture is excited and energized with the promises of a new Service Oriented Architecture, Microservices. The offer of rapid deployment, scalability, autonomy, and faster cycles of experimentation and innovation is one we can't ignore!

The slides and video for the session are available to you here, as well as videos on personal Microservices experiences from Thoughtworkers around the world!
