"For many organisations struggling with bloated legacy systems, keeping pace in todays world of intense competition from upstart competitors is a challenge. Micro-services, small, independently scalable and deployable applications communicating via the webs uniform interface offer a viable alternative. The Unix approach to building applications applied at enterprise scale. From monoliths, silos, RPC and integration hell to todays adaptive system designs with organisations deploying hundreds of these tiny applications automatically – we are on the verge of a bright new future.
This talk is aimed at developers, architects and executives with experience of building systems.”
