YOW! Night 2018 Perth – Michael Nygard – Jun 28

 

Grinding the Java Monolith

Microservices sound appealing, but what can we do with those ten-million-line Java code bases? Shared domain objects, horizontal coupling, and years of boundary erosion have left us with enormous complexity and spiderwebs of coupling. Michael will share techniques at various levels of abstraction, from implementation details to API design and responsibility allocation. There’s no silver bullet that will make it easy to decompose a monolith, but you’ll learn some techniques that have helped and some pitfalls to avoid.
