Past Presentations

Microservices At The Heart of BBC iPlayer

The BBC iPlayer API used to be a monolithic Java application. Two years ago we switched to Node.js microservices and we have been iterating on it ever since. We have learnt many things along the way including how to keep distributed systems decoupled, how to monitor the health of our services in...

Restoring Confidence in Microservices: Tracing That's More Than Traces

For software development at scale, confidence is everything. A few years back, we lost confidence in our velocity, so we moved to microservices to allow our teams to deploy without talking to each other. It worked! Too well. And now we are faced with an even graver crisis of confidence: nobody...

Microservices & Scaling of Rational Interactions

MB will present a new twist on his reactive summit talk about the scaling of microservices in computer and human interaction. As we scale services by across inputs and outputs, at every stage, we are challenged to rethink our calibrations of true and false. This has important implications for...

Microservices Lessons Learned From a Startup

When we started our - still ongoing - journey from monolith to microservices we had the idea of a straightforward transformation process in mind. But microservices are complex and the process is not straightforward at all - it's a path with failure and detours along the way. In this talk I would...

Monolith Decomposition Patterns

Patterns to help you incrementally migrate from a monolith to microservices. Big Bang rebuilds of systems are so 20th century.

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...

What is the work you’re doing today?

I build and operate software platforms for monitoring, aggregating, optimizing, and controlling renewable-energy assets, including energy production, battery storage, grid services, and electric-vehicle charging. These platforms leverage microservices and reactive-systems principles. I am most focused on mentoring and growing teams,...
