Duration: 2 hours

Contents of the talk:

Tale 1: Carving out a Java Microservice from a Ruby Monolith

A Ruby Monolith was causing large AWS bills, so the organization decided to do something about this. It turns out that there are obstacles when carving out Java microservices from a Ruby monolith, and not all of them are technical.

Tale 2: Analyzing and Solving a 504 Gateway Timeout Problem on AWS

A change in the way users used the system resulted in downtime of services caused by 504 Gateway Timeout on the ELBs
• What does that mean?
• What is causing it?
• And how to fix it?
This touches all layers of a project from DevOps and infrastructure via understanding HTTP and TCP/IP networking and POSIX operating systems to proper resource handling in source code (in this case, Java).
• The problem: 504 Gateway TImeouts
• The analysis: From structure to tools how we found the culprit with the system knowledge and systematic search.
• The solution — once more: Clean Code!

Tale 3: Migrating 190M records from DynamoDB and S3 to MongoDB

In one of our projects, we had to migrate 190M records from DynamoDB and S3 to MongoDB. In a live system.
This is the story of how we achieved that: how we did that, what went wrong along the way, and what we did about those things. This is about both, the migration script as well as the service reprogramming.
• Planning
• Testing
• Pitfalls
• Firefighting

Tale 4: An Odyssey in Go on the ocean of Azure

Go is said to be the new number one goto language for new microservices. And Azure the number one cloud. Or is it? This is a journey through what works and what doesn't.
