Programming for 46 years, now MicroService Fanboy and Programmer Anarchist
 @fgeorge52

Fred George is a developer and co­founder at Outpace Systems, and has been writing code for over 46 years in (by his count) over 70 languages. He has delivered projects and products across his career, and in the last decade alone, has worked in the US, India, China, and the UK. He started ThoughtWorks University in Bangalore, India, based on a commercial programming training program he developed in the 90’s. An early adopter of OO and Agile, Fred continues to impact the industry with his leading­ edge ideas, most recently advocating Micro­Service Architectures and flat team structures (under the moniker of Programmer Anarchy). Oh, and he still writes code!

Implementation of MicroService Architecture

TALK – VIEW SLIDES

MicroService Architectures has debuted on the ThoughtWorks Technology Radar as the first technology they address, and with strong recommendations to immediately experiment. In this talk, we will outline the guidelines we have used at two different companies to implement MicroServices. And more importantly, we will tell you about the pitfalls we have encountered.


MicroServices: Let’s Build Some!

WORKSHOP

We will start with a pre-built skeleton microservice environment (message bus plus a couple of RESTful services running against it). We will then design and implement additional services to broaden the overall functionality. These additional services can be written in any language that will run on the participants laptop. While pairing is strongly encouraged, it is not required.
