Microservices is the new cool architecture, and software devs and architects are excitably jumping on the microservices bandwagon, often without thinking about how they are going to operate the microservice.

Microservices architecture changes your software from a monolithic complicated system to a complex distributed system, and there are ways the operations team can help the development team to understand the issues, and own the architecture.

We’ll cover how DevOps like patterns can be applied on microservices to give the development teams more responsibility for their choices, and how monitoring, logging, auditing, security and other concerns can be managed in a distributed system.

Finally we’ll cover what happens when an Ops team resists, and help you encourage the development team to go in the direction that you want them to go.
