About the Course: Redesigning a Monolithic App as Microservices
During the course of these two days we will cover a high level architectural overview of what is needed to design, develop and maintain an application built with microservices.
We will take an actual monolithic application and redesign it into a set of small, independent processes for better scaling and faster development.
As there are many pitfalls one might be led to following a naïve approach we will cover a lot of design principles. For trying them out check out our hands-on Kubernetes courses.
This training is also available as an in-house, on-site opportunity.
In case you have any questions about the agenda or the on-site option, you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
This course is for you if
you are considering microservices for your organization,
you want to understand microservices better,
you want to migrate to microservices.
Prior Node.js knowledge is nice to have as we will take tooling examples from its ecosystem.
Prior Kubernetes or any other container orchestration system knowledge is nice to have. You will understand the technological background a lot better, though we can have a quick Kubernetes crash course in the beginning if need be.
No prior experience with Microservices is required - we will cover everything you need to get started.
The exact location of the venue in New York will be announced later.
