Designing Microservices

1 or 2 Day Workshop

An interactive day workshop that helps you design and adopt microservices

There is lots of theory out there about microservice architecture, but how often do you get to put that knowledge into practice? It's not feasible to re-architect your real system often, and certainly not in a single day, or is it? This brand new workshop from the author of Building Microservices gives you a safe space to explore ideas behind microservice architectures with peers from other organisations.

In this workshop, we'll share some framing for micro service architectures that explore the various forces that can drive the design and evolution of microservices, and then you'll participate in a series of interactive architectural kata exercises to put your new found knowledge to the test. Afterwards, you'll have a series of tools to take back to your own organisations to put into practice.

This workshop will cover

  • What makes a good microservice
  • How to use concepts from domain driven design to define service boundaries
  • Explore how to plan and manage a migration from a monolith to the microservice architecture
  • Understand how technical choices can impact the architecture itself
  • How to manage change and governance in a microservice environment

Audience

People who are in the process of moving to micro services, or are already on the path should get a lot out of the event. It's primarily aimed at people in technical leadership positions like tech leads and architects, but should be of use to any developer or operations person interested in how to move to microservices. Prior knowledge of service oriented architectures generally or microservices specifically is useful, but by no means essential.

Attendee Requirements

This is a participatory workshop. You won't get to just sit there and watch - the more you participate in the workshop, the more you'll get out!
