Participants should plan to attend both days of training course. Note: to attend training courses, you must be registered for a Platinum or Training pass; does not include access to tutorials on Monday.

By now your organization has planted a flag in the cloud, and you need to figure out just what that means to your application portfolio. Nathaniel Schutta explains how to determine what should be a microservice, what microservices are anyway, how you deal with massively distributed applications, and how event storming can fix the gap between your business problems and the domain model.
