Microservices is an increasingly popular architecture style that promotes scalability and ease of testing and deployment through small, highly distributed service components. It may sound like the correct architecture for your situation, but if you’re new to microservices, how do you really know? Understanding microservices’ pitfalls (practices that are never a good idea) and anti-patterns (practices that seem like a good idea, but aren’t) is a good place to start. In this video, 20+ year software architecture veteran Mark Richards (IBM, CSC, etc.) doesn’t just identify the pitfalls and anti-patterns of microservices, he shows you how to avoid them. You’ll learn about service granularity estimation, database migration, microservices reporting, distributed transaction management, remote access latency, contract versioning, distributed logging, and much more.
Mark Richards is an experienced, hands-on software architect involved in the architecture, design, and implementation of microservices architectures, service-oriented architectures, and distributed systems in J2EE and other technologies. He worked for twenty plus years as a software architect for heavyweights like IBM and CSC. He founded the New England Java Users Group and is the author or co-author of sixteen O'Reilly titles including Microservices vs. Service-Oriented Architecture, Service-Based Architectures, 97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know, and Software Architecture Patterns.
