The central enemy of reliability is complexity.
― Geer et al., 2003
A few weeks ago Christoph and I gave an introduction to MicroServices at Futurice‘s Beer&Tech sessions in Berlin. The idea was to collect our impressions from the DevOps conference 2015 in Berlin. I think we covered a lot of ground here from business value to technology and some simple live examples. The tools we introduced to were Docker, Consul and Prometheus and how to glue them together easily.
As part of giving this talk, I developed a small playground with the mentioned technologies. I already blogged briefly about this project called “MS-KOS”.
The live coding examples can be found on Github: MS-KOS
