Upcoming Meetings

Meetings start at 6:30pm

Kevin Buckley
Microservice Architecture

A look at the why and how when using a microservice architecture instead of the default monolithic paradigm. Breaking up your application provides better performance and more flexibility, which is why it's been adopted by Netflix, Amazon, Ebay and others. Kevin will walk through his experience in breaking up a monolithic system into a microservice architecture with examples of where it went well, where it wasn't great, and how it's helped his company. This talk is best suited for people who are living with a monolithic system and would like to hear a case study of a company who went through the transition to a microservice architecture.

Kevin Buckley codes for Chatham Financial, the largest Derivatives Consultancy in the country, and has been doing ASP.NET development for 9 years. He's currently spending most of his time obsessing over NodeJS, CouchDB, Redis, ServiceStack, and performance profiling.
