If you haven’t watched the videos from our recent Microservices Day New York event, I recommend that you do. In addition to the superb individual talks by those solving real-world problems, the panel sessions highlight common challenges and approaches.
One of my favourites is the talk given by Jason Melo, from ADP about The Asynchronous Enterprise.
ADP is responsible for processing the payroll of almost 90% of professionals in the US and is the largest payroll and HR provider globally.
Jason is VP for Product Development at Lifion, which is effectively a startup incubated by ADP with the mission of disrupting ADP from the inside out. His talk is very focused on organisational challenges and how technology is only one component of using microservices as a pattern. A critical aspect of that is how governance and process foster velocity and innovation at scale.
The resulting tech story is impressive! 160+ microservices, 4000 running containers, 700+ EC2 hosts and 45k Kafka messages per second.
We are delighted to announce Microservices Day New York takes place on Thursday 23rd March 2017 on the 34th floor at One World Trade Center. This event is invite only, if you or members of your team are interested in attending please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is Microservices Day New York?
Microservices Day is a one-day, single-track, non-profit event that focuses on the evolution and transformation of enterprise from a technology perspective.
In the webinar, I chatted to author Richard Rodger about several aspects of the microservices architecture, including the trade-offs involved in using microservices architectures, what to do about technical debt, and the key role of messages.
