We assemble at 18:30, the panel starts at 19:00 and will last until 20:00. Afterwards we are looking forward to discussions and socialising while enjoying food and cold beverages.


Uwe Friedrichsen, Fred George, Oliver Gierke and Andrea Stubbe join Eberhard Wolff for an open discussion about the do’s and don’t’s of microservices. We will try to get the audience to ask the most important questions a day before of the conference, and make sure we address the skeptics’ arguments. Have anything you’d like Eberhard to ask the panelists? Send him your favorite question to @ewolff ( on Twitter or be there when our panel starts to ask it yourself.
