Talk: The Seven (More) Deadly Sins of Microservices
Speaker: Daniel Bryant

All is not completely rosy in microservice-land. It’s often a sign of an architectural approach’s maturity that anti-patterns begin to be identified and classified alongside well-established principles and practices. Daniel Bryant introduces seven deadly sins from real projects, which left unchecked could easily ruin your next microservices project.

Daniel offers an updated tour of some of the nastiest anti-patterns in microservices from several real-world projects he’s encountered as a consultant, providing a series of anti-pattern “smells” to watch out for and exploring the tools and techniques you need to avoid or mitigate the potential damage.

Topics include:

Pride: the admission of the challenges with testing in a distributed system
Envy: introducing inappropriate intimacy within services by creating a shared “canonical” domain model
Wrath: failing to deal with the inevitable bad things that occur when operating new technologies, both from the people and technical aspects
Sloth: composing services in a lazy fashion, which ultimately leads to the creation of a "distributed monolith”
Lust: embracing the latest and greatest technology without evaluating the operational impact incurred by these choices.

Daniel Bryant works as an Independent Technical Consultant and Product Architect at Datawire. He currently specialises in enabling continuous delivery within organisations through the identification of value streams, creation of build pipelines, and implementation of effective testing strategies. Daniel’s technical expertise focuses on ‘DevOps’ tooling, cloud/container platforms, and microservice implementations. He is also a Java Champion, contributes to several open source projects, writes for InfoQ, O’Reilly, and Voxxed, and regularly presents at international conferences such as OSCON, QCon and JavaOne.
