SOLD OUT: Monolith to Microservices

Explore how to break apart a monolith and transition to a microservice architecture
Many people interested in adopting microservice architectures already have lots of valuable working software that uses different architectures. Rather than throwing all that away and undertaking a "Big Bang" rewrite, you can save time, headaches, and money by adapting what you already have and incrementally adopting a microservice architecture.

In this workshop we'll explore a number of techniques that allow you to incrementally migrate from existing monolithic applications or vendor-based software to microservice architectures. You'll learn how to make the necessary architectural changes to adopt microservices without needing to resort to a "Big Bang" rewrite.

We'll also explore how to plan and prioritse a transition, including how to make sure you can make progress while still shipping features.

What you'll learn and how you can apply it

By the end of this live online course, you’ll understand:

  • How to prioritize what to migrate first
  • How to keep your existing software running and serving customers while moving functionality to a new architecture
  • How to break down migration into multiple discrete steps

And you’ll be able to:

  • Use a variety of migration patterns in different contexts to make adopting microservices easier
  • See architecture less as a static, non-changing entity and more as something you must continuously change to make sure it’s fit for its purpose

This masterclass is for you because…

You're currently struggling with a large monolithic system. You have a big COTS product you want to replace with your own solution. You want to incrementally migrate toward a microservice architecture.

Course Requirements

A basic understanding of microservices is useful, but not essential. This class is not a coding workshop, but will be interactive, making use of group exercises to help participants explore the topics.

You can happily attend both of Sam Newmans Masterclasses. There won’t be more than 15 minutes of overlap between the two
