When Microservices Meet Real-World Projects

GOTO Conference Berlin 2015

03. December 2015 | -

As a consultant, Alexander Heusingfeld has seen both sides of the coin: on the one hand, he gets to know the leading-edge technologies that have just become ready for the market. On the other hand, there are customers with conservative operation teams, legacy systems, and strict data security regulations.

In this session, he shares some learnings from consulting gigs, talks about what business domain thinking means, and why the DevOps mindset can change the team spirit. He explains some of the approaches he used to iteratively modernize legacy systems into multiple self-contained systems, the different levels of architectural decisions that have to be taken and the impact of this architectural approach on a classic organization structure.
