Thirty months of microservices. Stairway to heaven or highway to hell?
Microservices are the next hype. Websites are full of introducing posts, books are being written and conferences organized. There’s big promises of scalability and flexibility. However, when you are knee deep in mud as an architect, developer or tester, it’s hard to find out how to get there. Sander Hoogendoorn, independent craftsman and CTO of Klaverblad Insurances, discusses the long and winding road his projects, greenfield and brownfield, have travelled. Sander will e.g. address polyglot persistence, DDD, bounded contexts, modeling HTTP/REST, continuous delivery and many lessons learned.
Sander is a dad, an independent consultant, software architect, programmer, speaker and writer. He coaches teams and helps improve software architectures and code. He’s written books on agile, UML, and web tools, and published over 250 articles in international magazines. Sander is a (keynote) speaker and presents (in-house) training courses on subjects such as agile, Scrum, XP, Kanban, continuous delivery, software estimation, agile requirements, UML, design patterns, software architectures, microservices, and both Java and .NET development.
