06.05.2016 Avoiding Microservice Megadisasters with Jimmy Bogard



Dear “I’d rather visit an user group event instead of having a long weekend” friends

We are proud to announce the amazing Mr. “Millions of Los Techies Webpage Hits Generator and unbeaten untapped King ;)” Jimmy Bogard will be hosting a session about how to avoid the Microservice Megadisasters at our Usergroup on Friday the 6th May 2016. We are well aware that it is a Friday and between a public holiday, that being said, sometimes there are opportunities we just have to take. We will make sure that we have enough stuff to drink and eat to have a great start into your Friday evening. And maybe we will try to beat Jimmy’s all-time records on untapped after the talk, just maybe 😉 After all, it will be Friday! Let’s join and make this an awesome event.

We are still looking for interesting short presentations for our usergroup meetings. Short presentations are the ideal format to give away your insights about the latest tools and techniques you use in your daily job. It is also a very good platform to sharpen your presenter skills. Send us an email to urs dot enzler at dotnet-zentral.ch or daniel dot marbach at dotnet-zentral.ch. Take the chance: you can give it in German or English!

Main: Microservice Megadisasters with Jimmy Bogard

You’ve spent months re-architecting your monolith into the new
microservices vision. Everyone gathers around to flip the switch. You
navigate to the first page…and nothing happens. Refresh…still nothing.
The site is so slow, it won’t respond for minutes. What happened?

In this session, I’ll walk through a post-mortem of a real-life
microservice disaster. I’ll show the modeling, development and production
problems we found, and how we slowly morphed the new distributed monolith
into our final picture of sanity. While we can’t prevent project failures,
we can at least identify problems early on in our design so that our final
product results in a clean, robust distributed system.
