Hi All - excited to see you on June 6th at OpenTable for three great talks!
6:00 - 6:30pm: Food/drinks networking
6:30 - 7:00: Mason Jones, staff software engineer at Credit Karma (https://www.creditkarma.com/): A Secure Docker Build Pipeline for Microservices
When beginning our shift to a microservices architecture, Credit Karma's engineering organization needed to find a way to meet security and compliance needs while enabling development teams to be self-service, independent, and agile. Infrastructure Services lead Mason Jones will describe the build pipeline we put in place to accomplish this, and how you can balance security and efficiency in your environment.
7:00 - 7:30 Jacob Lee, software engineer at StdLib (http://stdlib.com): How to Move Faster With FaaS
Function as a service (FaaS) platforms can use technologies like AWS Lambda to turn functions into infinitely scalable, highly available endpoints accessible from anywhere. These endpoints can be used to add pieces of functionality to existing monolithic architecture or as building blocks to create entire cloud-based microservice architectures. They provide great organizational benefits to projects, but also create difficulties when different services interact. This talk will discuss one approach to standardizing and organizing the way services communicate: an open-source specification called FaaSlang (Function as a Service Language). FaaSlang encourages simple conventions around microservice documentation and consumption, and includes type-safety mechanisms for inputs and outputs.
7:30 - 8:00 Kasun Indrasiri (https://twitter.com/kasunindrasiri), director of Integration Architecture at WSO2: Integration Microservices: Bridging Microservices, Integration and API Management"
Microservices is becoming so popular and a lot of enterprises has segregated their monolithic applications to fine-grained services. However, now most of them facing the issue of how to integrate/orchestrate among those microservices and create composite services. While the traditional ESB architecture is not an option, there’s a real need to have a framework for building ‘integration microservices’.
