Microservices architectures have many benefits, but they also come with some unique challenges. To maximize the benefits, knowledge and preparation are necessary.

In this tech talk, we'll cover:

  • How to take a strategic approach to microservices– including showing examples of success.
  • How to make your microservices implementation successful using distributed systems patterns and open source technology.
  • Communication patterns, transformations leading to more agile integration.

After the presentation, please stay and join your peers for networking, food and drinks. All attendees will also be entered for a chance to win an Amazon Echo.
