Microservices are trendy and everyone is talking about it.
However there are a lot of things one has to keep in mind before going all in with microservices and it's not always as simple and straight forward as it may sound. Microservices brings with it both organizational and technical challenges.
We'll start by looking into how Parkster, a mobile parking solution company based in Lund, came to use microservices and our road of migrating away from a monolith.
We'll move on to talk about hipster things like Docker, event based architecture, partial failures, integration, continuous delivery, server pets and why Docker alone is not enough. In the second part we'll look more closely into Google Kubernetes, an orchestration framework that allows us to view a cluster of Linux containers as a single system. If there's enough time we can discuss Kuberentes alternatives and explore their pros and cons.
