Day 1 - 10th Dec 10:40-11:30 Hall 7 #CM Advanced Advanced Dr. Stephen Robinson, Tom Mladenov

Microservices have saved us from the crushing pain of monoliths, only to raise a whole raft of questions about how microservices can work together to achieve meaningful features for end users.

One approach promoted by some famous names (LinkedIn, Netflix etc.) is to adopt a message driven architecture. This talk will introduce message driven architecture and discuss some of the advantages, risks and how to mitigate them, as well as some patterns which can help you take full advantage of the shift. We’ll also touch on Tide’s experience of moving to messaging as part of scaling up our development organization.
