"High performance pause free caching"

We will take a look into problems with traditional caching and show, how refreshing based caching can solve them while being very easy to use.

By: Kristo Kuusküll, Senior Engineer at Currencies Platform

Talk#2

"From monolith to microservices"

As the time flies by, most of the grown startups face the issue when monolithic application becomes a bottleneck due to performance and collaboration restrictions. This talk is going to share TransferWise experience moving from monolith to a microservices architecture. You'll hear about challenges faced and solutions discovered by our engineering team.
