In order to thrive in today’s volatile and uncertain world, businesses needs to innovate at a much faster pace. Recognizing this, IT organizations are adopting the principles and practices of DevOps and the organizational patterns defined by Team Topologies. But while DevOps and Team topologies are vital for delivering the fast flow of changes that today’s businesses need, they are insufficient. To prevent applications from becoming obstacles to rapid change, IT must also create architectures that support fast flow.

In this workshop, I describe the architectural requirements that enable DevOps and Team Topologies to deliver a fast flow of changes. You will learn about the forces that shape an architecture and the trade-offs that you will need to make when designing an architecture. I show how to decide between the monolithic and microservice architectural styles. You will learn key monolithic architecture patterns for fast flow. I describe how to design a microservice architecture.

Audience

Technology leaders, architects and experienced developers who want to learn how to use the microservice architecture effectively. The architecture and design exercises are on paper and are independent of any particular technology stack.

Format

This workshop consists of three 3 hour sessions delivered online over three days. Each session is a mixture of lectures, discussions, and exercises.
