Ensuring healthy microservices can be much harder than it sounds (and it's worth ensuring).
Join us for an in-depth meetup co-hosted by O'Reilly Media, NGINX, and Datadog featuring talks by John Feminella, Matt Williams, and Reshmi Krishna. You will walk away with concrete technical solutions implementing microservices, and understand both the best practices and pitfalls involved.
Besides insightful talks, we'll have good food and drinks, and the opportunity for you to connect with the New York metro area software architecture community.
