About Denver Microservices:
For many years, software architecture was described as the "parts that are hard to change later." But software architecture is the balancing of capabilities versus constraints. The microservice architectural style is quite popular, but it is only one in a family of evolutionary architectures.
This session defines the characteristics this family of architectural styles, along with engineering and DevOps practices needed for success, how organization and team structure affects these architectures, and specific engineer practices that facilitate evolutionary architectures. There also may be discussion on migration strategies from common exisiting archiectural types towards move evolutionary architectures.
