Modularity, Microservices, and Modern Architectural Paradigms

A session at ArchConf

Monday 4th April, 2016

9:00am to 6:00pm (PST)

New architectural paradigms are emerging that challenge traditional assumptions about the way that scalable and adaptable software is built. At the heart of these paradigms is a modular approach that breaks apart the monolithic application. But breaking apart the monolith has implications beyond software architecture and never before has architecture, infrastructure, and methodology been linked in a way that demands a new approach to software development.

In this workshop, we will explore modularity’s role in a large scale software technology agnostic architecture. We’ll compare and contrast different implementation technologies, including Dropwizard and OSGi, for building modular architectures. And we’ll discover the impact that modern architecture has on infrastructure and methodology. Throughout the discussion, we will examine how modern web and mobile apps fit into this overall architectural story. This session is a workshop and hands on labs are available, so bring your laptop if you’d like to perform the exercises.
