Hacking on with IT #12: Building Microservices on AWS

This Meetup is past

9 people went


We kick off the first of a two-part microservice workshop series where we first look at a simple microservice structure that can be created in AWS. The key component we will be looking at is the Application Load Balancer and how this can be used to achieve the microservice architecture.
We will follow up with a tech discussion on what other alternatives are on offer, this will include alternatives to HTTP based communications for microservices such as message based. We will talk about how asynchronous and synchronous messaging effects the design of microservices and how service discovery potentially using a service registry such as Eureka can help with large-scale microservice environments.
Attendees are welcome to bring laptops along if they wish to attempt to create the example environment in their own AWS account. The code will be made available in full after the event.
Some working knowledge of Java will be helpful but not essential.
Hope to see you there!
