The last year or so has seen a surge in interest in microservices and so I’ve ended up contributing to a couple of podcasts on the subject and was also invited to air my thoughts by the BBC Academy after speaking at their annual internal BBC::Develop conference. All good stuff. The links are here:
Short (~15 mins) featuring myself, Russ Miles and Rachel Evans interviewed on microservices. (It’s me! On the BBC!)
Software Engineering Radio podcast #213
This is an hour long podcast from SERadio of an interview I gave last summer. It’s interesting because the longer format gives myself and Johannes time to explore some ideas in more depth than is perhaps usual.
There is a transcript of parts of the interview in the January/February 2015 issue of the IEEE software magazine. Link coming soon
.NET Rocks! #917
A little older but another hour long podcast from the awesome dudes at .NET Rocks where myself and Matt Collinge from Compare the Market talk about organisational change, microservices and CQRS.
It’s looking like a really busy first half of the year (and of course I’m also working with our clients during this period too):
BCS Edinburgh – 4th February 2015, 6:30 pm
I’m speaking at the local BCS branch on microservices and the “one true way”.
Microservices Exchange, Berlin. 12/13 Feb 2015
Speaking on polyglot programmes at the microservices exchange conference in Berlin. This should be really fun and features lead thinkers in the field. Adrian Cockcroft will be there as well as former colleague Fred George (who arguable coined the term) and current colleague Sam Newman.
QCon, London. 2-6 March.
Lots happening at Qcon this year. I am a track host for the “taming microservices” track. We have Dan North, Phil Wills, Todd Montgomery and Phil Calcado (with one more to confirm) speaking on testing, design, protocols and operationalising microservices. I’m really excited about this as I really respect the speakers I’ve managed to get to talk for us. (And Todd is ex-NASA, how cool is that!).
I am also running my and Sam Newman’s tutorial on design and implementation of microservices:
Craft 2015, Budapest. 22-24 April.
I’m running the microservices tutorial again in Budapest at Craft. Again, excited about going since I’ve heard great things about the conference but never been before.
GOTO Chicago, 11-12 May,
I’m speaking on microservices in chicago at the GOTO conference. these are still my favourite conferences as an attendee and as a speaker. Thanks for the invite!
I T.A.K.E Unconference, Bucharest. 28-29 May
I’m giving a keynote at this great unconference in Rumania in May. Details of this are still be worked out but I’m really looking forward to visiting.
GOTO Amsterdam, 17-19 June
I’ll be in Amsterdam at another GOTO event. First time visiting this one so pretty excited (and obviously thrilled to be asked).
It’s looking like a busy 6 months indeed.
