During this talk you will discover why the ING Bank team chooses Finagle, and by consequence Scala, for connectivity between their APIs. To be resilient, APIs require dynamic service discovery, load-balancing, and performant connectivity, in addition to a reactive architecture and performant servers. In order to select the best candidate for the connectivity layer, ING Bank investigated several open source solutions and Alessandro will share with you why Finagle works for them on grounds of performance, integration with existing systems and the maturity of the existing extensions and community.
If you are interested in how to get Scala going in a large organisation and for those who are interested in the basics of Finagle, this talk is for you!
In the above, 'team' refers to the API Platform team at the Dutch Retail Bank of ING Bank. ING Bank as a whole is moving to APIs, and micro-services in particular, in order to a) provide a resilient service and b) to keep the deployable units and functionality governable. The team has chosen to investigate open source products, as ING Bank is aiming to use more and contribute to more open source software projects.
