By the end of this two-day training course, attendees will understand:
And they’ll be able to:
As a software architect, confronting the cloud can feel quite daunting. We are confronted with an onslaught of public cloud providers; which one should we choose? Are we ready for public cloud? Or do we need to focus on private cloud? And what does that even mean? Or are we looking for a hybrid solution? And these questions are only the beginning. Soon we’ll be looking at IaaS vs. PaaS. Containers vs. Unikernels. Servers vs. Serverless! Is there any way to make sense of all of the choices and cut through all of the hype?
Fortunately there is a way forward. There are clear architectural concepts and patterns that we can use as guideposts on our journey to the cloud. In this two-day workshop, we’ll gain an understanding of six key architecture qualities:
These qualities enhance our ability to apply the cultural and engineering practices of DevOps and Continuous Delivery, as well as to exploit the unique characteristics of cloud infrastructure. This positions us well to eliminate the great conflict between pursuit of business agility and system resiliency, ultimately allowing us to survive a new marketplace where speed is our primary competitive advantage and access to consumer services must be ubiquitous.
We’ll learn to create architectures possessing these qualities through applying a rich catalog of cloud native architecture patterns that you should be able to leverage regardless of your choice of cloud provider or technology stack. We’ll enhance our understanding of these topics by alternating between a traditional lecture setting and breaking up into groups to do kata exercises.
The newly trained cloud architect will leave this workshop equipped with an understanding of:
Matt Stine is an 18 year veteran of the enterprise IT industry, with eight of those years spent as a consulting solutions architect for multiple Fortune 500 companies, as well as the not-for-profit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. He is the author of Migrating to Cloud-Native Application Architectures from O’Reilly, and the host of the Software Architecture Radio podcast.
Matt is obsessed with the idea that enterprise IT “doesn’t have to suck,” and spends much of his time thinking about lean/agile software development methodologies, DevOps, architectural principles/patterns/practices, and programming paradigms, in an attempt to find the perfect storm of techniques that will allow corporate IT departments to not only function like startup companies, but also create software that delights users while maintaining a high degree of conceptual integrity. He is currently the Global CTO of Architecture at Pivotal, and spends much of his time advising IT leadership on the effective adoption of cloud-native architectures.
Matt has spoken at conferences ranging from JavaOne to OSCON to YOW!, is a eight-year member of the No Fluff Just Stuff tour, and serves as Technical Editor of NFJS the Magazine. Matt is also the founder and past president of the Memphis Java User Group.
