Time: Wednesday 15:45 - 16:45

As monolithic applications are quickly going the way of the mainframe dinosaur (no, not extinct, but relegated to specialized niche applications), we can expect to spend more time connecting services and components than developing new ones.

Will this make developers obsolete because business analysts use the latest drag-and-drop tools to wire up components?
Is coupling really so bad?
Why is REST popular?
Do we need distributed transactions?

This talk describes the constraints of connected systems design and presents common design patterns to address some of the challenges.
