Talk 1: A programming language for microservices integration
Ian Vanstone – Chief Customer Enabler, IntegrationWorks Global

WSO2 are one of the big names of integration and are well known for providing workhorse integration products covering application integration, data integration, API Management, analytics, and more. But a few years ago, they came to the realisation that integration was changing.

Historically, integration has been about connecting systems together. WSO2’s historical products were the glue between the endpoints – separate from the endpoints. But today, especially within microservices architectures, integration is part and parcel of the actual process of building systems.

To cut a long story short, this led to WSO2 open sourcing a brand-new programming language: Ballerina.

Come along to hear about and see how Ballerina can be used in microservices architectures.

Talk 2: Low-Code - Changing the game in the world of microservices
Mark Ashcroft – Principle Low-Code Architect, OutSystems

Wherever you look, the world of microservices is dominated by code. In the world of microservices, pre-built software, whether legacy systems or modern SaaS are shunned as too inflexible or because they disrespect domain boundaries. But the trouble with code is complexity – complexity at build time and a lot more from then on.

OutSystems and its Low-Code approach is now disrupting the world of microservices. In this talk, Mark describes exactly how OutSystems provides a lower-risk and higher-velocity alternative to writing code from scratch - and without sacrificing the power and flexibility of code.

Further networking follows talk 2.
