Abstract

We all leave QCon energized to try new things, explore alternative solutions to persistent problems, and share what we’ve learned with our teams.  It can be difficult to connect the dots between the compelling stories we hear about technological transformation with new technology and the work we do day to day.  Join some leading experts in microservices to share your challenges, hear from others who have similar challenges, and collaborate together on ways to take what you’ve learned at QCon back to work.
 
Attendance in this session is limited to 40 people. Please register for the session at bit.ly/qcon-microservices.
