GolfNow, a Digital Commerce division of NBCSports, develops interactive web and mobile applications for golf course partners and tee-time marketplaces at scale. GolfNow recently migrated from a monolithic .NET/SQLServer stack to a microservices approach to enable smoother scaling and more Agile development. Sheriff Mohamed and Marcus Briggs share the journey from research phase to migration onto a new container-heavy open source environment with Docker, Kubernetes, and CrateDB and the in-production outcomes, two years into the process.
