Navigating microservices architectures


  • 26. Oktober 2017
  • Chicago, IL
  • Conference Chicago at University Center


Featuring Christian Posta, chief architect of cloud-native applications at Red Hat

Microservices architectures have many benefits, but they also come with some unique challenges. To maximize the benefits, knowledge and preparation are necessary.

In this tech talk, we'll cover:

  • How to take a strategic approach to microservices– including showing examples of success.
  • How to make your microservices implementation successful using distributed systems patterns and open source technology.
  • Communication patterns, transformations leading to more agile integration.

After the presentation, stay and join your peers for networking, food, and drinks.

All attendees will be entered for a chance to win an Amazon Echo.


Questions? Contact Judy Breedlove.


Strategic microservices journey:

  • Overview of microservices architectures—and why you should consider them
