Micro services - by Derek Ashmore

Given published success stories from Netflix and Amazon, many companies are adopting micro service architectures. This session will provide you with an understanding what micro service architectures are and what benefits they provide. You should also be made aware of pitfalls and best practices for adopting this approach. This session is targeted at Java environments with Java coding examples, but could apply to most environments. This session will also provide an overview of tooling that supports micro service architectures such as Docker, Spring Boot, Dropwizard, and a few more.
