Understanding Microservices: A Guide for the Monolithic Developer


Come join us and learn about some of the finer details of moving from a monolithic architecture to a microservices architecture with examples in .NET 6.


  • Your RSVP with full name is required to add your name to the building security guest list.

  • The building requires a COVID attestation. What does this mean? To enter the building and participate on the event, you will either need to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within the week of the event. To streamline the process (and reduce lines on-site), Microsoft has created an online submission option: - you can go here and follow the steps or come prepared with documentation when you arrive on the 27th.


5:30PM - NETWORKING: Doors open, head to the room identified when you check in. Take the opportunity to mingle with your fellow community developers.

6:00PM - INTRODUCTION: Housekeeping, open mic and other community announcements & request.

6:15PM - MAIN PRESENTATION: Microservice Architecture and the reasons why you should move to it, and the reasons you shouldn't, have been well discussed. If you have already decided to move over to microservices from monolithic development, then you may be finding the whole process a bit daunting. What aspects should you, a developer be concerned with? What does all the terminology mean? How do the services talk to each other? In this session, I will show you how to get started with microservices architecture, answering these questions and many more. We'll look at The Tacky Tacos project, built with ASP.NET 6, and explore how the whole process fits together from a development point of view. Hopefully, you'll leave the session with the confidence to start your own microservices application development straight away!
