Abstract :

Cassie will present on the pros and cons of microservices and a better understanding of the things to consider and practices to follow to decide whether or not microservices are the best approach for them. 2) In a hands-on tutorial, Cassandra Shum explore microservices and demonstrate how to deploy service-oriented software using the popular DevOps tool Docker. Participants will learn a continuous delivery approach focused on building, testing, and deploying independent microservices to production continuously and autonomously.
