Abstract

In 2016, Susan Fowler released the 'Production Ready Microservices' book. This book sets an industry benchmark on explaining how microservices should be conceived, all the way through to documentation. So how does this translate actionable items? This session will explore how to expertly deploy your microservice to production. The audience will learn best practice for designing, deploying, monitoring & documenting application. By the end of the session, attendees should feel confident that they have the knowledge to deploy a service that will be reliable and scalable.

Speaker: Michael Kehoe

Architect of reliable, scalable infrastructure @LinkedIn

Michael is a Staff SRE at LinkedIn working on Incident Response, Disaster Recovery, Visibility Engineering & Reliability Principles. He specializes in maintaining large system infrastructure as demonstrated by his work at LinkedIn (applications, automation & infrastructure) and at The University of Queensland (networks). Michael has also spent time building small satellites at NASA and writing thermal environments software at Rio Tinto.
