Microservices in one way or another every computer engineer have heard about them and possibly did, at least, on step to implement one. It is easy to talk about them, it is extremely complex to implement in an effective way.
In this session we will explore two techniques that will help those microservices to be developed in an independent way, as much as possible, and also for them to take control of their data: contract testing and micro-databases.

We are very happy to welcome Allegra Cooper, Technical Lead at Vanguard, and Rob Richardson, Developer Advocate at Cyral, with two excellent talks!

TALK #2: Databases in the Microservices world
Speaker: Rob Richardson

Web technologies have come leaps and bounds. But are you still using the tired old database from last generation? Let's look at the methodology of microservices, compare it to bounded contexts, and look at ops tasks for micro-databases. Let's tour all the flavors of databases, understand their pros and cons, and when you would choose it. You'll leave with a roadmap for moving from data-monolyth to micro-databases.
