QCon SF 2012 tutorial on Micro services

I have an upcoming tutorial at QCon San Francisco on Micro services. It’s scheduled for Tuesday the 6th November for the full day. The tutorial will cover evolutionary architecture, web-integration, declarative provisioning of environments and tooling that allows us to create and operationalise simple and small applications.

If you want to come along, then please use my speaker code when booking; you’ll get a $100 discount on your ticket which has to be a good thing.

Micro services – evolutionary approaches for systems of systems

“Write programs that do one thing and do it well. Write programs to work together” was accepted 40 years ago yet we have spent the last decade building monolithic applications, communicating via bloated middleware and with our fingers crossed that Moore’s Law keeps helping us out. There is a better way.

Micro services. In this tutorial we will discover a consistent and reinforcing set of tools and practices rooted in the the Unix Philosophy of small and simple. Tiny applications, communicating via the web’s uniform interface with single responsibilities and installed as well behaved operating system services. So, are you sick of wading through tens of thousands of lines of code to make a simple one line change? Of all that XML? Come along and check out what the cools kids are up to (and the cooler grey beards).

In this tutorial we will cover the following topics:

Principle-driven evolutionary architecture
Capability modelling and the town planning metaphor
REST, web integration and event-driven systems of systems
Micro services, versioning, consumer driven contracts and postels law
Testing, Building and continuous delivery
Operational concerns

There will be a hands-on element to the tutorial looking at some basic tooling that allows us to very quickly create and operationalise micro-service based designs. Bring a laptop!
