Joseph McDermott, senior solutions architect at Klevu Oy ( will introduce some of the modern requirements that merchants have for ecommerce search.

**** Avid Public Speaker and CEO of Pronko Consulting - Max Pronko ****

**Applying Service Oriented Architecture for Magento 2 development**

For the last few years, the Magento 2 platform is moving into the decoupled state where each module is responsible for an individual operation. It allows to achieve higher performance, loose coupling and improve code quality. In this topic we are going to dive into Service Oriented Architecture and see on example how this can be applied in Magento 2.
