"Taming the Monolith - Are Microservices just an Implementation Detail?" by Dennis Traub



Domain-Driven Design changed the way we reason about large software systems. Modern practices, tools and technologies like continuous delivery, NoSQL, and cloud-based virtualization allow the creation of fine-grained systems to solve the specific problems at hand. Having DDD in mind and technical expertise at our hands, with microservice architectures we can build complex systems that reflect our businesses' complex realities and are easy to change at the same time. This talk will show what DDD and microservice architectures have in common and how you can use both to create software systems that fit your domain.


Dennis is Lead Consultant at ThoughtWorks with two decades of experience as a full stack developer, consultant, and coach across a variety of domains and technologies. He's passionate about making software development as simple as possible while keeping the business goals in mind. His specialties are domain-­driven design and agile software development.

"Microservices: Awesome, as long as they are neither ‘micro’ nor ‘services" by Stefan Tilkov



Microservices: Awesome, as long as they are neither ‘micro’ nor ‘services. The concept of a microservices architecture hit the community with tremendous force, and immediately struck a nerve. But the name is unfortunate – some of the connotations it carries are not at all necessary to reap the benefits of this approach. In this talk, we will discuss the forces that are independent from the size and the kind of interface offered, and see how they can be applied to various different scenarios.


Stefan Tikov is a decent-frequency blogger, tweets at @stilkov and is a frequent speaker at conferences in Germany and abroad. He is the author of the book "REST und HTTP". Stefan also used to be lead SOA editor on InfoQ. Stefan has been involved in the design of large-scale, distributed systems for almost two decades, using a variety of technologies and tools ranging from C++ and CORBA over J2EE/Java EE and Web Services to REST and Ruby on Rails. Co-founder and principal consultant at innoQ, Stefan spends his time alternating between advising customers on new technologies and taking the blame from his co-workers for doing so.
