The first Microservices Dublin meet-up takes place on Tuesday, February 24th at 7:30 PM in the Engine Yard offices, 35 Barrow Street, Dublin 2.
The informal, open meet-up brings together a community of like-minded people from all over Ireland who are interested in getting in near the start of the global move towards microservices. Speakers on the night are Adrian Trenaman of Gilt Groupe, Fred George, known as the father of microservices, and Richard Rodger of nearForm.
There may be an element of truth to this (though maybe not the snarling). Microservices are still “out there”, a technology in its infancy. Lots of people know about them, but have never actually seen a microservices-based software system in action. There is still an air of mystique about the whole thing.
The thing is, mad science has a way of changing the world. Three years ago, Node.js was exotic, a new kid on the block in software development. Today, Node.js is the must-have technology, and is used by many of the world’s biggest companies.
Microservices now are like Node.js in 2012. Moves towards the mainstream are being made: Amazon, Gilt Groupe and Netflix have all recently implemented microservices-based systems.
