Are you starting a new application and wondering whether to go with a monolith or take the microservices path? Do you have an existing application that is getting too big to deliver business value with a predictable velocity? Ever wonder how to regain the agility you had when an application that was smaller?
The current discussions around application architecture with microservices seem like an all or nothing journey without any stops along the way to catch your breath. This talk outlines questions to ask yourself to drive decisions along the way.
It also demonstrates one possible path for future growth, complete with intermediate stops along the way where you can catch your breath and evaluate your next step. This path avoids implementing too much complexity early in the process.
At the end of the journey you will not only have ideas to guide your own journey but tools that you can use to make the journey easier and less costly.
Learning Outcomes:
  • * Understanding of costs and benefits of microservices
  • * An evolutionary path from monoliths to microservices.
  • * An understanding of the benefits of the steps along the way.
