The Architectural Monolith’s days are numbered. As companies are becoming more and more agile, and see how they can now adapt in order to innovate and compete faster than their competition, software development teams are being forced to maintain and evolve large, monolithic applications at a pace of change that those architectures were never meant to withstand, let alone embrace!
Microservices are a new approach to architecting applications. They are simple, single-purpose, lightweight architectural components that enable you to deliver software faster. The microservice architectural approach also aims to lead to software that thrives on change while at the same time being secure, performant, and stable.
This meet up is for people interested in architecting, designing, deploying and maintaining micro service based software architectures.
Quick Note: *We have had to change the date to the 19th!*
After returning last month we are delighted to get the community together again - lets hear from more fantastic speakers and have some great conversations around our favourite subject - Microservices!

Speaker 1: Eoin Shanaghy - CTO at FourTheorem.
Title: Adopting Serverless and Getting to Production Faster
As with any emerging technology, early adopters of serverless are finding gaps in the tooling required to get started and iterate quickly. It also takes time to experiment and find the best patterns and practices. A certain amount of fear and trepidation is understandable as you embark on your serverless journey! How do I do logging and monitoring? What's the best way to do continuous deployment? What databases should I use and when? What tools should I use to build my serverless application? Should I use one repository per service or monorepo? These are just some of the hard decisions to be made and every one has the potential to slow you down and steer you off course as you push to get to production.
We have combined our experience in building production serverless systems with learnings from the community to create a set of best practices and tools. This is all put together in SLIC Starter, a production-grade open source serverless project that helps you to learn and get a complete system into production quickly.
Eoin is the CTO and co-founder of fourTheorem. He is an architect and developer with experience in building and scaling systems for startups and large enterprises. Eoin has been learning and building with many technologies from CORBA-based distributed systems in 2000 to full-stack container and serverless applications of late.
Eoin is the author of "AI as a Service", a book on serverless platforms with managed AI from Manning Publications (http://www.aiasaservicebook.com)
Having worked building products in a lot of fun and interesting sectors from banking and telecoms to video streaming and entertainment, Eoin co-founded fourTheorem to take that experience and share it with customers and the community!
