Common Technical Misconceptions About Microservices

Date 25 January 2019 (Friday)
Time 5:00 p.m. - 6:15 p.m.
Venue Tin Ka Ping Lecture Theatre (LT-1), Floor 4, Yeung Kin Man Academic Building, CityU
Speaker Mr. Kiet Yap, Client Architect, Asia
Company MuleSoft

Like Big Data a couple of years ago, Microservice is now in every single technical conversation. And like Big Data, everyone claims that they have ongoing projects using nodeJS, SpringBoot or whatever existing programming language that all of a sudden becomes the language of choice to build "modern" Microservices.

As a developer this is definitely an exciting period, with multiple ways to build a Microservice-based "HelloWorld" and to make each of us proud of our newly acquired technical skills... but wait, haven't we already created a SOAP-based “HelloWorld” Webservice years ago? So why my "HelloWorld” Microservice is better than a "HelloWorld" Webservice? And most importantly, how do my newly acquired skills benefit the business world?

In this session we will discuss the real purpose of Microservice, beyond the technical aspects, and how innovative organizations realign their business model using Microservices approach. Most importantly, we will see how to design Microservices in order to speed up the delivery cadence suing Agile approach, while keeping everything under control... something that SOA and Web Services have failed to achieve.

Agenda Topics:

  • How does the concept of Microservices start?
  • Key differences between Web Services and Microservices
  • Relationship between Microservices and APIs
  • The common pattern for agile enterprises when adopting Microservices and APIs
  • Q & A
