Data Patterns - Migrating from Monolith to Modern Architectures
MANDATORY REGISTRATION VIA THIS LINK: Join us for the next By ThoughtWorks tech-talk series. Mingle, learn, and hang out with those wanting to keep up with the latest in technology. It’s our shout, so please join us for a fun and casual session over drinks and nibbles with networking to follow. DATA PATTERNS - MIGRATING FROM MONOLITH TO MODERN ARCHITECTURES The data heart of many businesses is monolithic legacy systems, beating powerfully but slowly as they are hardened against rapid change. However, to quickly derive business insight, act for customers in real time, and empower autonomous product teams, we look to microservice architectures and self-service data platforms to infuse the entire organisation with arterial streams of data. To make the change is equivalent to open-heart surgery - how do we maintain the data pulse while we animate every part of the business with responsive data? The good news for the patient is that we have surgically precise techniques available. Andrew will share a range of approaches to common scenarios when migrating incrementally from monolithic legacy systems and batch processes to modern streaming architectures and services bounded by business contexts. He will also share some general design principles for modern data architectures. This will provide a practical framework for thinly slicing data migrations that your organisation can start using today. SPEAKER: Andrew Jones, Lead Consultant, ThoughtWorks Andrew Jones is a self-taught software developer and tech lead, currently based in Melbourne. He has worked in startups, non-profits and enterprise environments in a variety of roles, with his most recent roles requiring cloud and data architecture specialties so as to help organisations unlock the value in their data. Andrew has skills and interests across a wide variety of languages including Clojure, Javascript, Golang and Ruby, tools like Ansible, and platforms like AWS. He is equally comfortable working with infrastructure or on front-end code.
