Hear from Thoughtworks' James Lewis who explores the real world challenges of deploying and managing many small applications.
The trend towards fine grained SOA and micro-services is having an impact on how we design and code systems. As we move towards developing applications composed of small services we are "pushing accidental complexity into our infrastructure" (Martin Fowler). While this has benefits in terms of scaling, maintainability and replaceability it also raises questions about our ability to manage large numbers of small applications in production.
This talk explores some of the real world difficulties encountered in testing, deploying and managing many small applications as well as examining strategies to help take advantage of the opportunities that designing for replaceability can provide.
