Simon Brown – Modulair Monoliths

If you want evidence that the software development industry is susceptible to fashion, just go and take a look at all of the hype around microservices. It’s everywhere! For some people microservices is “the next big thing”, whereas for others it’s simply a lightweight evolution of the big service-oriented architectures that we saw 10 years ago “done right”. Microservices is by no means a silver bullet though, and the design thinking required to create a good microservices architecture is the same as that needed to create a well structured monolith. And this begs the question that if you can’t build a well-structured monolith, what makes you think microservices is the answer?

Joris Kuipers (CTO @ Trifork) – Springing into the Cloud

So you’ve decided that you want to split up your modulair Java monolith, and now you’re looking for some help? In this talk, Joris will explain the support that Spring Cloud provides for building a distributed systems architecture by showcasing features like centralized configuration, service discovery, API gateways and distributed tracing. There will be a small number of slides, and large amount of code to show you how to start your foray into a microservices world!
