This event has ended.
Microservices are taking the software engineering world by storm. This architectural style of decomposing applications into network-based services has been credited with increasing software delivery speed and improving scalability and resiliency at companies like Amazon and Netflix. It’s no wonder that many organizations are jumping in with both feet.
To succeed with a microservice architecture in the long run, however, you’ll need to deal with the increasing complexity of your microservice-based software as it grows. By taking a design-based approach from the outset, you’ll be able to scale up more smoothly and establish a sustainable implementation.
Join Matt McLarty to learn the design principles, architectural practices, and organizational considerations that will help you succeed with microservices. You’ll walk away from this session with ideas and guidelines that will help you reap the benefits of a microservice architecture while avoiding its potential pitfalls.
What you’ll learn and how you can apply it
By the end of this live, online course, you’ll understand:
- The potential benefits of microservice architecture
- The principles and practices that help to achieve each benefit
- A methodology for defining a microservices strategy
- Determine what benefits are most important to your organization
- Develop a blueprint for your microservices strategy
- Identify the domains that encompass your microservices system
This live event is for you because…
