What Lies Between: The Challenge of Operationalising Microservices

The biggest challenge in operationalising microservices is managing the space between them. This is the land of distributed systems: uncertainty and non-determinism. I will present practical approaches that you can use to take microservices into production or increase the value provided by...

Building and Trusting a Cloud Bank

Rebuilding The Monolith With Composable Apps

From Microliths To Microsystems

QCon: Your original title had Microdisservices before you changed it to the current one. What did you mean by Microdisservices?

You will get Microdisservices when you approach microservices in a too simplistic way. When you do not go all in building systems with Microservices, bringing over too much preconceptions, patterns, tools and ways of thinking, learned from years building monoliths. It’s a good way to shoot yourself in the foot and get all the...
