Author Sam Newman catches up with Tim Berglund (Senior Director of Developer Advocacy, Confluent) in the virtual studio on what microservices are, how they work, the drawbacks of microservices, what splitting the monolith looks like, and patterns to look for.
The pair talk through Sam's book “Monolith to Microservices” chapter by chapter, looking at key components of microservices in more detail. Sam also walks through database decomposition, integrating with new technology, and performing joins in event streaming architecture. Lastly, Sam shares what he’s excited for in the future, which includes “Monolith to Microservices Volume II.”
