Microservices Architecture in the Real World
  • Mason Jones - Senior Staff Infrastructure Engineer, Credit Karma

Once you decide to adopt a microservices architecture, you'll face many more decisions and questions. Among them are some core areas that this session will cover, based on the experiences from making this shift at Credit Karma. Over the past two years, Credit Karma has gone from zero to nearly 100 microservices, supporting over 300 engineers while serving our more than 80 million members. The talk will dive into detail about routing (how does service A find and call service B?), management (how do you handle hundreds of containers?), observability (how do you know what's going on out there?), and experience (how do your developers deal with these services?), while also touching on the cultural and organizational impact that you can't avoid. Audience members will come away having heard about solutions, pitfalls, and practical examples that have worked in the real world at scale.

How to Implement Microservices Patterns using Serverless Architectures
  • Richard Freeman - Lead Data & Machine Learning Engineer, Starwolf

As more organisations move from monolithic to microservices architecture they make use of best practice microservices patterns. However, implementing microservices using containers and their orchestrators involves a lot of initial and ongoing effort, along with the cost associated with idle nodes running, maintenance and configuration complexity in the likes of resource constraints, deployments and networking. We will show you how a serverless stack:

  • Can be used to implement core microservice architecture patterns
  • Can dramatically increase the delivery speed, productivity and flexibility of the development team
  • Reduce the overall running, DevOps and maintenance costs

The elephant in the room: How to attract and retain great DevOps talent
  • Tony Chapman - Co-founder and Organizer, The DevOps Exchange

People, Process, Technology, 3 of the key things to consider if you’re looking to implement DevOps principles.

So you’ve implemented you DevOps processes, you’ve agreed on the technology you’re going to use to deliver, but here is the killer question…. how are you going to attract and retain the people to implement the vision?

DevOps is all about culture, but one of the most difficult areas in the implementation of DevOps practices is finding exceptional people with the relevant skill sets who can put the strategy created into practice.

Huge amounts of organisations demand DevOps related skills, but do we set ourselves aside from the other ten thousand companies looking for ‘DevOps’ capability? Demand far exceeds supply, so we need to ensure we are different.
