Cracking the Case: How to Migrate from Monoliths to Microservices
Date: Thursday, June 11th at 11am PDT / 2pm EDT
Microservices migrations can be a challenge. What's the best approach to choosing your tech stack when splitting a monolith into a service-based architecture? What are the pros and cons of modern cloud infrastructure choices and reasons why you’d choose one over another? What monitoring solutions are available today and what are their strengths and weaknesses for maintaining, understanding and observing your new infrastructure?
Join Lightstep SWE, Stephanie Baum to learn about:
- The decision process of choosing cloud infrastructure to support service-based architectures
- Examples of migrating pieces of monolithic functionality over to modern managed solutions
- Pros and cons between observability tools and where they fit in a monolith to microservice migration
