Microservices - The Easy Way is the Wrong Way

Online event

This meeting will be virtual. Please RSVP for meeting link.

Come join Sean Whitesell as we dive into what you need to know about microservices before you start building one.

6:30PM - INTRODUCTION: Housekeeping, open mic and other community announcements & request.

7:00PM - MAIN PRESENTATION: In the effort to be buzz-word compliant you get onboard and start making a microservice for nearly everything. You have learned that the only way to grow in this programming industry is to use microservices so you took a look at your codebase and started hacking away. Months later you pull your head out only to realize you have spent way too much time and money going the wrong direction from the start.

In this presentation, Sean will go over what are microservices, pros and cons, and a vast set of details. These details will highlight what developers need to know about microservices, networking, sharing code, sharing a database, and much more. If time permits, Sean will walk through an example of leveraging Domain-Driven Design to create microservices.

Sean is a Microsoft MVP, Cloud Architect, and .NET developer. He is also the president of the Tulsa .NET User Group. Sean is a frequent speaker at user groups and conferences.
