Micro-service Delivery Without the Pitfalls
The days of delivering a monolithic desktop application once a year on physical media are long gone. Today we expect continuous (or at least frequent) delivery of upgrades and security patches with zero downtime. To support this, more and more companies are moving to a distributed, cloud-based architecture of collaborating micro-services. But managing and testing an evolving of a micro-service ecosystem is not without it’s challenges.
In this session we’ll examine what can go wrong when organisations jump headfirst into micro-service architectures without understanding the potential pitfalls. You’ll leave with an understanding of the techniques and tooling necessary to reap the benefits of increased flexibility and velocity without creating additional risk or deployment nightmares.
