Building scalable apps using microservices and APIs - with A. Belvedere




You've heard about microservices and APIs, and would like to understand how to leverage on them for your own applications?

Andrea is a veteran CTO with 25 years of experience in Software Engineering. He spent 7 years as the CTO of Gengo, and recently moved to WealthPark to lead the development of their mobile app.

In this talk, Andrea will explain through examples what are microservices and APIs, why an architecture using them is more robust, flexible and scalable, and how you can migrate from a monolithic application to this new architecture.

ApéroTalk is our event series based on a very simple (and very French) concept: Apéro and Talk.
