Session on Microservice Standardization at Software Architecture Conference

  • Westin St. Francis 335 Powell Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States

I'm very excited to be speaking at O'Reilly's Software Architecture Conference this November in San Francisco on one of my favorite topics: microservice standardization. Here's an excerpt from the conference website: 

"The adoption of microservice architecture brings a considerable amount of freedom to developers, freedom to make their own decisions about language, architecture, development tools, and the like. While this romantic idealization of microservice architecture is true in principle, not all microservices are created equal, nor should they be. To build a sustainable microservice ecosystem, one in which microservices interact with one another seamlessly, we need to hold our microservices to a set of very high architectural standards.

In this session, Susan Fowler introduces seven principles of microservice standardization that are general enough to apply to every microservice at every company, yet specific enough to be quantifiable and produce measurable results. Every microservice, she claims, must be stable, reliable, scalable, fault-tolerant, performant, monitored, and documented. She dives into the requirements associated with each standard, and shows how they work together to produce highly available and sustainable microservice ecosystems."
