#8 Three or more lies about miocroservices which everyone is afraid to talk about

Lecturer: Jarek Pałka

The ‘microservices’ word has been mentioned this year at conferences and industry portals in a number that should be in the Guinness Book. Will this new trend exploding in front of our eyes change our industry forever? Or will it pass like many other solutions from the “silver bullet” category. During this presentation, Jarek shared his experiences and observations from the implementation of microservices and warned against the lurking dangers, and above all, convince the audience to find their own way in this new architecture.

Jarek Pałka

For more than 20 years in the IT industry, as a database administrator, programmer, architect, manager and "onsite disaster engineer". At the moment, working at Neo4j as performance engineer, enjoying the way of code, and exploring dungeons of JVM and OS, after few years as chief architect in SaaS business and teach lead in Allegro.pl. I took part in small, medium and large projects nonsense, under the principles of "Waterfall", Agile and in the absence of any methodologies, always with the same effect. What led me to the conclusion that no matter what you do, as long how you do it well, in the simplest possible way and use appropriate tools that do the work for you. In the meantime, I fell in love in the ideas of TDD and Software Craftsmanship, to the limits exploring beautiful in its simplicity ideas as REST and NoSQL, only to abandon them to explore the secrets of "systems thinking" and admire the strength that brings "metaphor" and discover that we are all objects in an eternal virtual machine. Humble follower of the church of JVM, bytecode and JIT researcher, exploring all sorts of parsers, interpreters and compilers. From time to time you can hear my low-quality jokes about architecture conferences in Poland. I am also author of a blog on http://geekyprimitives.wordpress.com/ and self-proclaimed dictator in the program committee at SegFault ,CoreDump, 4Developers and JDD conferences.
