Presentation: The idiot’s guide to quashing microservices

Time: Wednesday 11:00 - 11:50 / Location: Grand Ballroom C

So your boss, annoying coworker, or random stranger has cornered you and started screaming at you that micro services are the answer to every problem you’ve had (and many you’ve never had).

You feel scared, you feel angry, and you’re not sure of what to do next. Do you jump in enthusiastically, or do you risk looking like a grinch by saying no?

In this talk, we’ll explore options between those two extremes. We’ll arm you with intelligent rebuttals and holes against microservices pitches that nobody puts on the brochures. The financial industry often has interesting restrictions and requirements, and a naive approach to microservices is bound to run afoul of all of these without sufficient preparation.
