Title: Microservices Architecture in the Start-up Community - The Practical Guide

Speaker: David Ward

Presented by the University of Minnesota Software Engineering Center

Abstract: Microservices architecture has taken over as a replacement to traditional monolithic system approach, however, this new approach brings up great design challenges. Data isolation, large complex data graph queries, and DevOps and CI/CD include some of those new challenges. Learn how practical approaches to a good microservices design can save time and money on your next large scale project. In addition, get a side look at the pros and cons of working for a start-up company as well as how start-ups approach development.
