Challenges faced in the Microservices journey

Submitted by Mamta Jha (@mjha) on Thursday, 8 August 2019

Section: Crisp talk (20 mins) Category: Distributed systems Status: Awaiting details


Everyone these days discusses “Monolithic to Microservices”, and we have enough information available on the benefits of having microservices designs. But creating a microservices-based architecture and implementing has lots of challenges associated with it.
Microservices is fascinating to hear, but it needs realtime architectural experience to implement a distributed system.
I want to discuss the challenges one faces during this journey, and how do we overcome these challenges. I will help the audience to get a feel of the potholes they may face when they start the journey of microservices. I will like to emphasize on the ways they can handle these and just get benefited from microservices-based architecture.

    2. The proposal to the talk does not clearly indicate the war stories or points to the war stories you will be discussing during the talk.
    3. Add the missing examples in the Abstract and Outline for us to be convinced about the conclusions you are drawing.
    4. As you are in your introduction rightly said that everyone is discussing about “Monolithic to Microservices” these days, specify the new aspects precisely that you are trying to bring to the table?

    Submit your revised proposal with slides and preview video within 7 days so that we can complete the evaluation of your proposal. If there is no response in 7 days, we will move the proposal to reject owing to lack of response from proposer.

    Hi Anwesha,

    I am down with fever from more than a week now. It will be beneficial if you can extend the time for me till September 3 or 4.
    I will prepare video, slides and will also respond to all the queries by then.

    I will be grateful if my request is accepted.
