On Monday, April 27, before the start of SATURN 2015, a small group of 16 software engineers met to explore ideas around the emerging microservices architecture trend. Microservices have seen a rapid rise in popularity over the past year or so, and we thought it would make an interesting topic of discussion. Sam Newman's book covers significant ground and yet there there are still many nuances that we don't fully understand.
You can read the raw notes and a summary of our findings on the workshop GitHub page. Here's a snapshot of some of the "ah-ha!" moments that came out of our discussions.
The workshop was facilitated by Michael Keeling and George Fairbanks with significant guidance from Dennis Mancl in helping plan the workshop. Participants included Len Bass, Simon Brown, Amine Chigani, Tom Citriniti, George Fairbanks, Gregor Hohpe, Jim Hurne, Michael Keeling, Jon Keneyer, Eianar Landre, Dennis Mancl, Jorn Olmheim, Mary Shaw, Rebecca Wirfs-Brock, Joe Yoder, and Olaf Zimmerman.
All workshop materials are hosted on GitHub in the spirit of free and open collaboration among the broader software engineering community. If this topic is interesting to you, you are welcome to re-use or remix the workshop materials to run your own workshop on the topic. All we ask is that you let us know what you've learned and send us a link so we can share your outcomes with the broader community!
