Join us for CircleCI’s May Office Hours. We want to meet the developers and software teams who use CircleCI, and hear about all the great things you’re doing.

There will be networking, a talk from CircleCI on transitioning from monolithic apps to services, pizza and refreshments with the chance to talk one-on-one with the CircleCI team about everything from getting started to troubleshooting your specific use case.

About the Talk
Managing the Transition from Monolith to Microservices

While the debate rages on about the wisdom of building monolith-first, the reality for CircleCI customers is that the majority of projects do start as monoliths. And while it sounds great to defer to that magical day when you’ll switch everything to services, successful projects usually find on that day that they have 24x7 workload, paying customers, and a system that isn’t designed for incremental change.

With real-world examples from the internals of CircleCI and other projects, Rob Zuber, CTO at CircleCI will discuss some of the patterns that make it easier to transition away from the monolith, the dangers lurking in premature implementation of services, and early design decisions that have amazing and terrible impacts on scaling when the time comes.

6:00 – 6:30 pm: Networking, food and drinks.
6:30 – 7:00 pm: Rob Zuber, CTO at CircleCI presents, “Managing the Transition from Monolith to Microservices”
7:00 – 7:10 pm: Q+A
