µCon: The Microservices Conference is now SOLD OUT. We are sorry if you were unable to secure a ticket. We are looking into finding a bigger venue. If we are successful, we can issue more tickets. Join the Waiting List if you would like us to notify you if more tickets will be released.

In the mean time, you may like to check out Russ Miles' hands-on pre-conference Tutorial on Building Microservices, for which we still have some tickets available. Join this tutorial if you would like to learn how to design, deploy and manage microservice based architectures

Microservices

The Architectural Monolith’s days are numbered. As companies are becoming more and more agile, and see how they can now adapt in order to innovate and compete faster than their competition, software development teams are being forced to maintain and evolve large, monolithic applications at a pace of change that those architectures were never meant to withstand, let alone embrace!

Microservices are a new approach to architecting applications. They are simple, single-purpose, lightweight architectural components that enable you to deliver software faster. The microservice architectural approach also aims to lead to software that thrives on change while at the same time being secure, performant, and stable.

Building, managing and deploying architectures based on microservices is not easy. Knowing where to start is part of the challenge. We're therefore very proud to introduce the inaugural conference solely dedicated to the topic of architecting, designing, building and deploying microservices, µCon.

Martin Fowler's Microservices article has sparked a great deal of buzz and debate in the Twittersphere and µCon will provide the opportunity to question the leading experts in software architecture and find out how you can use it in your software.

Pre muCon workshop

Russ Miles will be running a one day workshop the day before µCon: Introduction to Building Microservices Tutorial. Learn how to design, deploy and manage microservice based architectures, a great way to prepare for µCon!
