Microservices are a software development technique—a variant of the service-oriented architecture (SOA) architectural style that structures an application as a collection of loosely coupled services. In a microservices architecture, services are fine-grained and the protocols are lightweight. The benefit of decomposing an application into different smaller services is that it improves modularity. This makes the application easier to understand, develop, test, and become more resilient to architecture erosion. It parallelizes development by enabling small autonomous teams to develop, deploy and scale their respective services independently. It also allows the architecture of an individual service to emerge through continuous refactoring. Microservice-based architectures enable continuous delivery and deployment. (Source: Wikipedia)

Talk 1: Microservices

Speaker: Nikhil Wanpal | Software Author and Architect | Consultant

Nikhil has 11 years of experience in Web and Analytics Application Development. When not coding, he loves cycling and spending more time with his family. In an alternate universe, he would have loved to be Jon Snow, before season 7 and 8 were released.

Duration: 1 hour

Contents of the talk:

Microservices based architecture is in a way characterized by the non-functional services and infra it requires and everyone talks about. In this session, we shall pick a standard monolith system, break apart its components to evolve to a microservices architecture.

Along the way, we shall see why each non-functional service is (if at all) required, what role it plays while also probably uncovering the darker side of this shining architecture style. This will purely be an architectural discussion and we shall avoid getting into implementation detail specific to a language or framework.

Talk 2: Microservices War Reports

Speaker: Christian Hujer | CTO | Software Craftsperson at Nelkinda Software Craft
