Russ Miles

Microservices with DDD, big data and antifragility



Russ Miles demonstrates and implements the domain-driven design (DDD) patterns that enable you to build great microservice-based systems. Based on Russ’ years of experience (see bio below), this workshop shares the deep technical skills that you need to make your microservices adoption a success.

This workshop covers the following topics:

Designing a monolith ready for microservices.
Applying patterns such as bounded contexts, events and event sourcing to be flexible enough to embrace microservices at the right point for your application.
How to build fast data flows and integrate with big data tasks from your microservices.
How to deploy, upgrade, stress and manage your microservices so that they are ready for production.


Code examples and exercises will be written in Java, so previous experience with Java is recommended although not mandated as many of the key takeaways will be applicable regardless of your choice of language, framework or platform.

Format of the course:

The course will be 50% theory, 50% labs to explore the different concepts being discussed. Please bring your laptop.
