Presentation: "Microservices @ Spotify"

Track: Microservices & Modern Architecture / Time: Thursday 13:20 - 14:10 / Location: Hall 1

The software industry used to be all about building monoliths: monolithic applications and services, with bing-bang product releasees. All that has now changed and we are much better for it.
This talk is about how breaking up those monoliths in your schedule, your organization and your architectures can help you increase your team's innovation throughput and making you more competitive in today's fast moving markets.
