The path to migrating to microservices from a monolithic or service-oriented architecture (or even starting a greenfield application) is riddled with challenges, pitfalls, canyons, demons, and even fire-breathing dragons.

Mark Richards likes to call it “The King’s Road.” He walks you through the migration patterns that allow you to easily fly over this challenging road and ease the pain associated with moving to microservices. He also explores some automation tools you can use to help analyze your applications to determine how challenging this road might be.

Prerequisite knowledge

  • A basic understanding of the microservices architecture style

What you'll learn

  • Learn the most effective way to move to microservices and what the requirements are
  • Discover how to determine whether it's feasible to move your current monolith to microservice, how to determine the overall level of effort to migrate your monolithic application, if your migration effort involves a rewrite or a simple refactoring of code, or if you have to move all the way to microservices or if there's a middle ground
