QConSF 2016 Abstract:
By embracing the tension between order and chaos and applying a healthy mix of discipline and surrender Netflix reliably operates microservices in the cloud at scale. But every lesson learned and solution developed over the last seven years was born out of pain for us and our customers. Even today we remain vigilant as we evolve our service architecture. For those just starting the microservices journey these lessons and solutions provide a blueprint for success.
In this talk we’ll explore the chaotic and vibrant world of microservices at Netflix. We’ll start with the basics - the anatomy of a microservice, the challenges around distributed systems, and the benefits realized when integrated operational practices and technical solutions are properly leveraged. Then we’ll build on that foundation exploring the cultural, architectural, and operational methods that lead to microservice mastery.
