Explore the key concepts behind microservices with Jenny Liao before she guides you through applying the concepts to evaluate and build systems of your own.
Part one: Workshop goals, expectations (30 minutes)
We have a problem. Let’s solve it with software.
Let’s discuss terminology and concepts so that we’re all talking about the same things with the same vocabulary.
Hands-on workshop, part one (30 minutes)
Part two: The solution has limitations; let’s improve it. (30 minutes)
We have identified single points of failure…
Let’s replicate this thing.
We have performance bottlenecks.
How can we apply these concepts to a real piece of software?
Hands-on workshop: Part two (30 minutes)
Part three: Discussion and conclusions (30 minutes)
For each exercise, you’ll work in small groups to apply the concepts in the preceding presentation to the problem. As Jenny discusses additional aspects of distributed-systems design, the groups will apply these concepts to their in-progress solutions.
You won’t need laptops or specific coding experience; you will need enthusiasm for collaborating in small groups and for discussion-based problem solving.
