Migrating to Microservices
Microservices is one of the latest software architecture styles that promises to deliver benefits such as ease of testing, fast and easy deployments, fine-grained scalability, architectural modularity, and overall agility. It is undeniably one of the latest trends in the software industry, and everyone seems to be jumping on the bandwagon to quickly embrace and adapt this new architecture style. Unfortunately, many companies are struggling trying to break apart their existing monolithic or service-oriented architectures and move them to a microservices architecture, and are finding it more effort than they bargained for.
In this intensive hands-on deep dive workshop Mark Richards takes you on a detailed journey on how to effectively break apart a monolithic application into microservices. Your journey starts with decomposing the monolith using various migration patterns. Mark then continues the journey by taking a detailed look at identifying and creating services, and then onto breaking apart large, monolithic relational databases. Your journey finally ends with stitching services back together through various communication and workflow patterns. During our journey you will be doing hands-on design exercises to identify services, identify and assign data domains to services, and finally determining communication and workflow between services using real-world case studies. By the end of this class you will gain a keen understanding of the patterns and techniques to effectively analyze tradeoffs, options, and pathways for effectively migrating applications to microservices.
