Training: Designing Microservices with Sam Newman

Location: Henry Moore, 4th flr.

Duration: 9:00am - 4:00pm

Day of week: Thursday and Friday

Level: TBD

Prerequisites

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

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 training from the author of Building Microservices gives you a safe space to explore ideas behind microservice architectures with peers from other organisations. In this training, 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 training 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.

Sam Newman is an independent consultant specializing in helping people ship software fast. Sam has worked extensively with the cloud, continuous delivery, and microservices and is especially preoccupied with understanding how to more easily deploy working software into production. For the last few years, he has been exploring the capabilities of microservice architectures. He has worked with a variety of companies in multiple domains around the world, often with one foot in the developer world and another in the IT operations space. Previously, he spent over a decade at ThoughtWorks before leaving to work with a startup. Sam speaks frequently at conferences. He is the author of Building Microservices (O’Reilly).
