Welcome to Mercari's Global Engineer's Meetup! This is an event to gather global engineers in the Tokyo area to share technical knowledge and network over drinks & food. This is not a study session, no need to bring your laptop (unless you really want to). Each session we'll have a different theme.

📌 Theme: Microservices Platform

Mercari is migrating from a Monolithic to a Microservices architecture as the services and organization is growing. The Microservices Platform Team's goal is to create a platform that maximizes developer Productivity and allows each team to have ownership to independently develop high-speed services.

This event will introduce Microservices Platform Team's projects.
All talks will be in English.


1) Raphael Fraysse: Raphael is a Software Engineer, working on the Microservices Platform at Mercari. He genuinely enjoys providing a great infrastructure experience to developers throughout his career.

Talk: A tale about thinking, planning, and designing a network architecture for large-scale microservices on GCP in a post-IPO company.

2) Tomoya Tabuchi: Tomoya is a former intern at Microservices Platform Team. He currently is a graduate student studying programming language theory.

Talk: grpc-http-proxy: a proxy that allows hassle-free testing of gRPC services.
