Minimizing Design Time Coupling in a Microservice Architecture

Delivering large, complex software rapidly, frequently and reliably requires a loosely coupled organization. DevOps teams should rarely need to communicate and coordinate in order to get work done. Conway's law states that an organization and the architecture that it develops mirror one another. Hence, a loosely coupled organization requires a loosely coupled architecture.  

In this presentation, you will learn about design-time coupling in a microservice architecture and why it's essential to minimize it. I describe how to design service APIs to reduce coupling. You will learn how to minimize design-time coupling by applying a version of the DRY principle. I describe how key microservices patterns potentially result in tight design time coupling and how to avoid it.

Panel: What Have We Learned Over the Last Decade of Microservices?

Our expert panel of Microservices practitioners will be looking at and examining what we as an industry have learned over the last decade or so building and delivering Microservices architectures. We will discuss what some of the common challenges are for newcomers to the space, and look at what worked and what didn’t. We will also explore what approaches, techniques and tools have managed to stand the test of time (or not), as well as gain some insight into future thoughts and trends in this space.
