The Talk

Microservices are the new hotness, but many people are unclear on what is a microservice and what is not. Is it consultancy and book-deal hype? Is it just another term to be co-opted and abused by vendors? Is it just re-branding SOA for hipsters. In this talk, Ian Cooper takes us on a journey through the techniques we can use to manage complexity in software showing the evolution from OO to Components to SOA and finally to Microservices.

Having put this new meme in context, Ian will explain the characteristics of a Microservices architectural style, how they relate to and are different from what has come before, and the pitfalls to watch for. He will explain why management, monitoring, deployment and devops culture are just as important when thinking about Microservices as the collection of re-badged and re-branded 4 tenets and DDD advice. By the end of this talk you should be able to understand the Microservices trend and whether or not it is useful for your development.
