A keynote covering the innovations that lead to microservices, and the new advances that could change how we use them

Microservices are the hot new thing, but where did they come from, and where are they going? This keynote will take you through the many origins of microservices. In it I’ll share with you some of the surprising influences and prior art that have shaped what they have become. By understanding where microservices architectures have their roots, we can learn from the past and avoid making the same mistakes – and we can also start to see where microservices will be going next.

Material

You can view the slides here, although please note that in isolation it may be hard to get a sense of what the presentation is about just by looking at the slide decks.

Audience

Developers, architects, technical leaders, operations engineers and anybody interested in the design and architecture of services and components. This is more lighthearted and broad than many of my talks though, so should be of general interest to many.
