Responsible Microservices


These days, you can’t swing a dry erase marker without hitting someone talking about microservices. Developers are studying Eric Evan’s prescient book Domain Driven Design. Teams are refactoring monolithic apps, looking for bounded contexts and defining a ubiquitous language. And while there have been countless articles, videos, and talks to help you convert to microservices, few have spent any appreciable time asking if a given application should be a microservice. In this talk, I will show you a set of factors you can apply to help you decide if something deserves to be a microservice or not. We’ll also look at what we need to do to maintain a healthy micro(services)biome.

Functions and Platforms and Containers, Oh My!


Let me guess - your company is all in on “the Cloud” but no one can really agree what that means. You’ve got one group Dockering all the things while another group just rearchitected the Wombat system as a set of functions…as a service. It is enough to make a busy developer’s head spin - how do we make sense of all the options we have? I hate to burst your bubble, but there are no silver bullets, just a set of tools that we can leverage to solve problems. And just as a master carpenter knows when to use their favorite framing hammer and when they need to reach for the finish hammer, we need to use the right tool at the right time to solve our problems.
