From Monoliths to Microservices – and Beyond!

As enterprises continue their DevOps journeys and strive towards Continuous Delivery (CD), there is strong demand for solutions and tools that will improve software application development and delivery pipelines. In this quest for better software faster, Microservices have emerged as a solution to the limitations presented by monolithic legacy applications.

With Microservices, teams have the opportunity to break free from being tied to monolithic-style single release cycles for any and all improvements or updates. This enables the scaling of teams and applications to meet speed and efficiency demands for software delivery. However, there are a number of challenges that come along with Microservices.

Watch this DevOps.com webinar to hear Mark Hornbeek, principal consultant, DevOps at Trace3, and Anders Wallgren, CTO at Electric Cloud, share the most important considerations – culturally and architecturally – for shifting from monoliths to Microservices.

This video provides useful takeaways – whether you are in the midst of your Microservices journey, you are just getting started, or you are still considering whether Microservices are right for you.

The pipeline will go through various stages such as source, build, test, approval, UAT stage, Prod stage. The demo will utilize only AWS services including AWS CodeCommit, Codebuild, code pipeline, Elastic container service (ECS), ECR, and Fargate.
The current environment of Continuous Disruption requires companies to transform how they work and how they engineer their products. Transformations are notoriously hard to execute, yet many companies have succeeded. What can we learn from them? Can we produce a blueprint for a transformation? This presentation will cover several distinct approaches that companies take to achieve transformation. Each approach utilizes different levers and comes with its own advantages, tradeoffs, costs, risks, and outcomes.
