Node.js is known for it’s ability to provide fast responses, which makes it a perfect candidate for an API or orchestration layer. API failures happen to the best of us and the trick is to be prepared for them. Circuit breakers are a way to prevent upstream dependency issues from cascading down to your other microservices by providing a mechanism for fast fault detection. Craig Freeman (Kenzan) will teach us how to handle failed requests quicker, which will result in a better overall user experience. This talk covers the relationship of circuit breakers to a typical microservices ecosystem as well as demonstrates the pros and cons of this approach.

Food and drinks will be provided. There is a pay parking lot adjacent to the building, but there should be street parking available.
