Operating Microservices: Patterns for Success

Microservices solve numerous problems around cognitive load, velocity, isolation, and scalability - if you get them right!

In Operating Microservices: Patterns for Sucess, we bring you practical advice around what good really looks like with system observability, patterns of integrating with legacy codebases, and situations when microservices were NOT the right answer, and the most common issues encountered when it comes to day 2 operations with microservices. 

Microservices are an effective way to solve many problems in software, but it’s also a great way to introduce them if not done (and operated) well.

Orchestration vs Choreography, A Guide To Composing Your Monolith

Tuesday Oct 25 / 01:40PM PDT

Microservices promise rapid evolution, operational independence, and technological freedom but come with imperceptible drag factors. Left unchecked, this drag leads to distributed balls of mud – hard to operate, evolve and maintain.

[Recording] Overcomplicated Architecture: Scaling Bottleneck

Tuesday Oct 25 / 02:55PM PDT

As a digital scale-up continues to gain momentum and grow rapidly, one of the key determining factors of success is how quickly they can evolve their product. The business desires to push features to production as fast as possible and prove value to its customers.

Panel: Building Performant Microservice Architectures

Tuesday Oct 25 / 05:25PM PDT

Microservices improve cognitive load, velocity, isolation, and scalability. They also introduce complexity, increased reliance on the network, observability challenges, and, often, request latency.

Untrusted Execution: Attacking the Cloud Native Supply Chain

Tuesday Oct 25 / 04:10PM PDT

Should we trust the code we run in production? Not if a motivated attacker can compromise our system’s complex supply chains. While hardened runtimes and detection can mitigate some zero day attacks, malicious internal threat actors and software implants are much harder to detect.
