Building microservices

Your trainer: Sam Newman
May 16 – 17, 2019 | London
…from the author of “Building Microservices.” – the best-selling Microservices book.

There is lots of theory out there about microservice architecture, but how often do you get to put that knowledge into practice? It’s not feasible to re-architect your real system often, certainly not in a single day… or is it? This brand-new workshop from Microservices Mastermind Sam Newman gives you a safe space to explore ideas behind microservice architectures with peers from other organizations.

In this workshop, we’ll share some framing for microservice architectures that explore the various forces that can drive the design and evolution of microservices. We’ll go over what microservices are, their advantages and disadvantages, and explore lots of practical advice to help implement microservices in your own organization. You’ll participate in a series of interactive architectural exercises to put your newfound knowledge to the test. Afterwards, you’ll have a series of tools to take back to your own organisations to put into practice.

This workshop will cover:

  • What makes a good microservice
  • How to use concepts from domain driven design to define service boundaries
  • Explore how to plan and manage a migration from a monolith to the microservice architecture
  • Understand how technical choices can impact the architecture itself
  • How to manage change and governance in a microservice environment

Implement microservices in your own organization

This workshop is aimed at developers in the process of moving to microservices or those who want to improve their microservices architecture. It’s primarily aimed at people in technical leadership positions like tech leads and architects, but should be of use to any developer or operations person interested in how to move to microservices.

This is a participatory workshop. You won’t get to just sit there and watch; the more you participate in the workshop, the more you’ll get out!


Prior knowledge of service oriented architectures generally or microservices specifically is useful, but by no means essential.
