Join CircleCI next Monday and Tuesday, June 27-28 for the StackWorld 2016 Conference & Expo, San Francisco’s largest DevOps and scalability tech conference. We are proud to be lanyard sponsors and can be found at booth 102.
StackWorld 2016 will connect the community and educate practitioners on scaling their applications and technology stacks. CircleCI CTO Rob Zuber will present, “Managing the Transition from Monolith to Microservices” on Tuesday, June 28th at 2:00 pm PT on the Workshop Stage.
While the debate rages on about the wisdom of building monolith-first, the reality for CircleCI customers is that the majority of projects do start as monoliths. And while it sounds great to defer to that magical day when you’ll switch everything to services, successful projects usually find on that day that they have 24x7 workload, paying customers, and a system that isn’t designed for incremental change.
With real-world examples from the internals of CircleCI and other projects, Rob will discuss some of the patterns that make it easier to transition away from the monolith, the dangers lurking in premature implementation of services, and early design decisions that have amazing and terrible impacts on scaling when the time comes.
If you are heading to StackWorld ‘16, we will have a few CircleCI shirts and stickers so please seek us out and say ‘hello!’
