He has been coding professionally ever since he wrote a QuickBASIC point-of-sale app for his parent's pizza shop back in the 90s. He currently works as a Developer Advocate for Couchbase. His free time is spent with his family, watching the Reds, and getting involved in the developer community. He is the author of AOP in .NET (published by Manning), and is also a Microsoft MVP.


Everybody loves Microservices, but we all know how difficult it is to make it right. Distributed systems are much more complex to develop and maintain, and over time, we even miss the simplicity of old monoliths. In this talk, I propose a combination of Infrastructure, architecture, and design principles to make your microservices bulletproof and easy to maintain with a combination of high scalability, elasticity, fault tolerance, and resilience.

This session will also include a discussion about some microservices blueprints like asynchronous communications, how to avoid cascading failures in synchronous calls, and why you should use different storages according to the use case: Document Databases to speed up your performance, RDBMS for transactions, Graphs for recommendations, etc.
