Organizamos una sesión conjunta con los amigos de ScalaMAD y Madrid MongoDB User Group, en el que Katia Aresti ( @karesti) nos contará el proceso de migración de una aplicación Web Legacy monolítica a una arquitectura dee servicios REST utilizando AngularJS, PlayFramework y MongoDB.

Una oportunidad de conocer experiencias reales de primera mano.

Sobre la charla:
How and why we evolved a legacy Java Web Application to Scala... and we are still alive!

Applications get old, and technology moves fast. Overtime, adding or modifying functionalities might become as expensive as re-coding everything all from scratch. But rewriting a complete website and its functionalities it’s hard if we want to minimize the risks of breaking existing functionalities and specially when this application fits in a ecosystem and interacts with other pieces of software and teams.

In this session, you will learn how we moved from a legacy java monolithic website using scala PlayFramework, AngularJS, Elasticsearch and MongoDB, how we built a multi service and REST oriented architecture, which were the technical and human problems we encountered and how we managed to solved them.
