What you'll learn

  • Learn how platform engineers use open source tools like Cloud Foundry and Spring Boot to automate how developers build and operate cloud-native applications


It’s safe to say that any company that was writing software 10 years ago—and is building microservices today—will need to integrate with legacy systems. Kenny Bastani explores building cloud-native microservices that integrate with legacy systems using practices from Martin Fowler’s strangler application to slowly strangle domain data away from a legacy system using microservices. Throughout the session, Kenny uses an open source reference application built with Spring Boot and Spring Cloud to demonstrate techniques for integrating a cloud-native microservice architecture with legacy applications in an existing SOA.

This session is sponsored by Pivotal.
