YOW! DepthFirst Workshop

Microservices: Let's Build Some! with Fred George


It is one thing to talk about Microservices. It is another altogether to have to build them. After a brief introduction of Microservice principles, we will watch an animation of a micro­service environment. We will start with new versions of pre­built skeleton microservice environment (RabbitMQ message bus with a couple of starter services in Java, C#, and Ruby). We will then design and implement additional services to broaden the overall functionality. These additional services can be written in any language that will run on the participant's laptop. While pairing is strongly encouraged, it is not required.

In the final stage, different pairs will implement different services, yet they will all run together implementing the animation.

Throughout the workshop, we will stop as participants come across common issues with Microservices. We will use this time to discuss best practices.

We wrap up with the participants making observations on what they learned (and how it may be different from Microservices they are currently implementing, if any). This is followed by presentations on Microservice challenges and the organization impact of rapidly developed Microservices.



The focus of the workshop will be on:

  1. Understanding how to design asynchronous service architectures

  2. Creating small, yet functional, services rather than larger services,

  3. Reducing coupling to the bare minimum (JSON packets with extra fields ignored), and

  4. Debugging asynchronous systems.



Participants are required to bring a suitable development machine (portable) for working through the exercises.
