"Developing apps w/ a micro-service architecture" with Chris Richardson

Chris Richardson will be back for round 2! We loved having Chris present at All Things API last year and we are excited to have him back. 


6:00-6:30 networking, drinks and pizza

6:30-7:30 Speaker: "Developing applications with a micro-service architecture" with Chris Richardson, the founder of the original

The micro-service architecture, which structures an application as a set of small, narrowly focused, independently deployable services, is becoming an increasingly popular way to build applications. This approach avoids many of the problems of a monolithic architecture. It simplifies deployment and let’s you create highly scalable and available applications.

In this talk we describe the micro-service architecture and how to use it to build complex applications. You will learn how techniques such as Command Query Responsibility Segregation (CQRS) and Event Sourcing address the key challenges of developing applications with this architecture. We will also cover some of the various frameworks such as NodeJS and Spring Boot that you can use to implement micro-services.

Software craftsman, author and entrepreneur

Chris Richardson is a developer and architect. He is a Java Champion, a JavaOne rock star and the author of POJOs in Action, which describes how to build enterprise Java applications with POJOs and frameworks such as Spring and Hibernate. Chris is the founder of the original, an early Java PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) for Amazon EC2. He now consults with organizations to improve how they develop and deploy applications.

    Thanks to everyone who came to the talk. I really enjoyed the event.

    Here are the slides:

    (They are for a talk that I gave the week before. The only difference is that it doesn't have the slides on the refactoring process)

    It would be great to continue the discussion so please contact me via twitter or email. Thanks again.

    I see Chris has a lot of presos on SlideShare -- including this one does anybody know?
    TIA, Mark

    Thanks Chris for addressing huge scale monolithic apps that have critical business functionality. I need to identify those nouns and verbs it supports to build out new services.

    The topic was very interesting and thought provoking. The presentation by Chris encouraged me to think about different levels of software architecture, and designing and building applications in a modular fashion to accommodate scalability, application adaptability, and changes in programming technology.
