Published on

Microservice is a buzzword, Agile is a buzzword, DevOps is a buzzword, Java-based itself means so many things… We can continue this way - ad infinitum. What we all really want to see is the real practice! What’s important is how we actually implement a microservice architecture, which techniques and tools we use, how we can structure our teams and our work process. We will show you exactly these thing during this talk!

In this talk you will see real examples and hear real stories of the work life. We will see the way we work in agile manner, utilizing principles and practices, and how we build and scale our solutions. It is very interesting to see how the microservice architecture reflects the Agility and how our Agile way of working is changing the microservices. For sure there are pros and cons, success and failure stories, good and bad results - we will tell the real story.
