What Architecture (The Building Kind) Can Teach Us About Architecture (The Software Kind)

Presented by: Wes Delp
Time: Thursday 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Architecture has existed for the better part of human history. Over 2000 years ago, the Roman architect Vitruvius claimed that a good building must be durable, functional, and bring delight. Sounds familiar, right? This session will explore how architectural design concepts such as 'less is more',...

Going crazy with CQRS

Presented by: Seth Kraut
Time: Thursday 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM

CQRS stands for Command Query Responsibility Segregation, which doesn’t clarify that much. CQRS is a high performance, event oriented flavor of Domain Driven Design.

API Gateways and Microservices: 2 peas in a pod

Presented by: Santosh Hari
Time: Thursday 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Chances are you’ve already gone through the tedious process of decomposing your monolith into microservices, or at the very least, want to use microservices in the near future. Nowadays, microservices connect to various APIs. These APIs could differ in protocols (REST/SOAP), where they’re hosted...

Say No To Accidental Architecture! Code Your Design Systems Instead

Presented by: Burton Smith
Time: Thursday 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Are you still rockin' a single "styles.css" file in or project or have styles scattered throughout your project? Do you find yourself fighting to override styles or throw the "!important" property around a lot? Does your project have 20 different kinds of buttons and you don't know why or even where...

Vertical Slice Architecture

Presented by: Jimmy Bogard
Time: Thursday 4:45 PM - 5:45 PM

Moving from a layered architecture to a vertical slice architecture can be a bit daunting. We remove abstractions, complex structures, and focus building on the axis of change, then what's next? What new structures, patterns, and policies will need to be introduced in this style of architecture? How...

Event processing without breaking production

Presented by: Nathan Zender
Time: Friday 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM

Transactional systems are built with the primary focus of processing many concurrent events, only keeping the current state of data. What if I told you there was a way to capture all the events that led to that current state? Capturing all events would allow for deeper analytics/machine learning,...

Context is King: Finding Service Boundaries

Presented by: Derek Comartin
Time: Friday 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM

Are you having trouble defining service boundaries? We know there are benefits in splitting up a complex system, such as more focused models and modular deployments. Defining the correct service boundaries is incredibly important but can be pretty tricky. When defined correctly, the model feels...

Serialization for the new micro service landscape

Presented by: Leonardo de Moura Rocha Lima
Time: Friday 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM

Serialization is often overlooked when developing backend systems, and this wasn’t (and still isn’t) a problem inside a monolith. But with the developing scene moving towards micro services, serialization becomes really important - how to serialize your data? What aspects do you need to...

REST in Peace: Killing REST and adopting RPC.

Presented by: Steven Swenson
Time: Friday 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

REST has been the de facto architecture for web APIs for 15 years, and its deficiencies are starting to become quite apparent. It is difficult to document, poor standardization, and lacks common tooling. For developers, this results in extra work when creating or consuming an API. The time has come...
