So many talks on microservices wax nostalgic about a service oriented utopia. In the perfect system, well factored services seamlessly communicate and every developer is a 10x developer. That is not this talk. This talk is about the hard won lessons on how to actually kill your monolith with microservices. This talk presents:

  • Where to start breaking down your monolith
  • A roadmap for building a cohesive microservices plan
  • Some practical guidelines for designing a microservices-based architecture
  • A systematic process for migrating a live system to microservices without downtime

After leaving this talk you should have a clear vision for how to beat your monolith and achieve the fabled service oriented nirvana.
