The Ins and Outs of Microservices


Thu, Jan 25, 6:30 PM (UTC)


About this event

Last meetup, Richard Tilbury, Director of Personal Group, asked you what you thought about having a session on microservices.

Everyone’s eyes opened, and the answer was “YES”.

Then you were asked - what if you had to do some homework?

You then said, “YES YES!” (Okay, we might be embellishing a little here).
Since you were so excited, we decided that the master of architecture and microservices - the one, the only, Francisco Menezes, our own OutSystems Lead Architect Expert - should come to our next meetup.

That’s right, Francisco is flying in from Lisbon to join Richard and answer all your questions.

(Don’t fall off your chair just yet)

So, what do you have to do? Go over your homework :) at the end of this post.

By doing your homework beforehand, we’ll all be able jump right into discussions about the advantages of microservices, the use cases that work best, and any other questions you want to bring to the discussion.

The agenda:

• Networking and Welcome Introduction (30 minutes)
• Talk (20 minutes)
- An Introduction to Microservices, by Richard Tilbury (Personal Group)
• Q&A (45 minutes)
- The Ins and Outs of microservices, with Francisco Menezes (OutSystems) and Richard Tilbury (Personal Group)
• Networking, Drinks, and Nibbles (30 minutes)

Note: We changed the venue to a more central location.

Homework material:

The Concrete Foundations of Architecture

Microservices Architecture in OutSystems

Understanding Service-Oriented Architecture

Pattern: Microservice Architecture

For extra credit:
Architecting Sustainable Applications

P.S. We will do an introduction in the beginning of the session, so you will be OKish if you are not able to go over all of the material. However, in order to get the most out of this session, if at all possible, you should try to do this homework. :)
