The fundamental performance characteristics of Node.js make it ideal for building highly performant microservices for a number of workloads. Translating that into highly responsive, scalable solutions however is still far from easy. This session will not just discuss why Node.js is a natural fit for microservices, but will introduce you to the tools and best practices for creating, building, deploying, monitoring and tracing microservices that are both scalable and fault tolerant, and show through a live demo how do that with minimal effort.
