World of Microservices: The Emphasis on Bounded Context

Many developers around the world have jumped on the Microservices bandwagon. Several organizations, in the past and also in the present, have built around monolithic and also service oriented architectures. What separate, however, Microservices from those efforts at large? How does a Microservices based architecture influence the design of the software applications, what are the key design principles we should keep in mind, and how to leverage design goals like reuse and extensibility?

In this presentation we will revisit the design goals we often focus on in software development and how those evolve in the context of Microservices.

10:30 – 11:15

Dreaming of Streaming with Reactive Programming

Some concepts are evergreen: they should be discussed ever and ever again! Events are one of them: messaging becomes an essential asset in your toolbox once you shape your mind around events. Using an Event-Driven Architecture on top of a Message-Driven Architecture allows us to truly unleash the benefits of distributed computing.

Deep dive with us on this tutorial, where we’ll cover reactive programming with Quarkus and Apache Kafka to teach you the fundamentals of how to create a distributed, resilient, and scalable application. You’ll learn that events and messaging are not hard: just bring your passion for Java application development and benefit from the Quarkus developer experience!

Evolving your service landscape

Even now that applications are becoming more distributed and decoupled, you still need to make sure you do not break contracts between the various moving parts of your solutions as your landscape grows and matures.
In this session we will have a look at how you can do versioning of contracts between clients and services, as well as between publishers and subscribers. Also, you are going to see what client contract testing is all about and how it can help you to get a grip on releasing new versions of your services.
We will look at the concepts, approaches and strategies, but also get a practical view of applying these ideas into your software lifecycle using .NET based solutions and Pact for contract testing.

15:30 – 16:15

Enabling Microservice Success 

Microservices can be a very effective approach to speeding up delivery of value to your organisation and to your customers. If you get them right.
If you don’t, then microservices are just something that makes everything you do more complicated, from working out where things are going wrong to upgrading the same dependency in tens or hundreds of services.
After nearly ten years experience of building and operating microservice architectures at the Financial Times, Sarah will talk about:

  • What does ‘successfully using microservices’ look like?
  • What key aspects of organisational structure and culture do you need?
  • Where are the biggest challenges, and what can you do to avoid them?

Architectural Thinking

Architectural thinking is seeing things with a “software architect’s eye”, similar to how a meteorologists, artists, and mariners see clouds with a different point of view and with different meaning. Architectural thinking isn’t just for architects – senior developers and tech leads can apply architectural thinking into their daily activities as well to better understand the architectural implications of decisions they make. In this session you’ll learn what architectural thinking is and how to apply this kind of thinking to your daily work and activities, regardless of your role or title. In this session you’ll learn how to identify and define various architecture characteristics, how to expand your technical breadth, and also learn techniques for doing modern tradeoff analysis.
