Topic

"Azure Functions - the evolution of microservices platform or marketing gibberish?"

Topic description

When many people hear the word microservices, they think of Kubernetes. And it’s hard to blame them: the utilization of Docker containerization together with Kubernetes orchestration really seems like a match made in heaven.

But, there is a new name in town: serverless (or FaaS). It seems it can offer you all the stuff that Kubernetes has and more. Native support for .NET, Java, Python, Node. Out-of-the-box binding for things like HTTP incoming requests (for Web API), incoming queue message (for processing async tasks), time-based trigger, etc. It also comes with micro billing (you pay only for execution time, not for idle time) and 0-to-infinite scalability. But is it all too good to be true? Aren't there any drawbacks? Is it all a huge marketing scheme to make us actually pay more? Let's find out.

Topic

“Migrating from a monolith to microservices – is it worth it?”

Topic description

The term ‘microservices’ has become so popular that many people see it as a silver bullet for all architectural problems, or at least as a trend that should be followed. If your project is a monolith today, does it make sense to move towards microservices? This presentation overviews painful issues to be considered when migrating from a monolith to microservice architecture, ways to solve them, and ideas on the feasibility of such migration.
