Microservice AntiPatterns and Pitfalls Part 1

A session at NFJS Twin Cities Software Symposium

Friday 4th March, 2016

3:15pm to 4:45pm (CST)

Even though teams are gaining more experience in designing and developing microservices, nevertheless there is still a lot to learn about this highly distributed and somewhat complicated architecture style. Unfortunately, lots of microservices anti-patterns and pitfalls emerge during this learning curve. Learning about these anti-patterns and pitfalls early on can help you avoid costly mistakes during your development process. While anti-patterns are things that seem like a good idea at the time and turn out bad (see martinfowler.com/bliki/AntiPattern.html), pitfalls are those practices that are never a good idea at the time - ever. In part 1 of this 2-part session I will cover some of the more common pitfalls you might encounter while creating microservices, and describe some of the ways of avoiding these pitfalls.

Part 1 will focus on the following Microservices Pitfalls:

Grains of Sand Pitfall
Developer Without a Cause Pitfall
Jump on the Bandwagon Pitfall
Logging Can Wait Pitfall
Using Too Much Acid Pitfall
Static Contract Pitfall
Service Orphan Pitfall
Are We There Yet Pitfall
Dare to be Different Pitfall
