Thanks to Hugh McKee, Developer Advocate at Lightbend, for sharing his insights on microservices in advance of his presentation, “Building Microservices that Scale and Do Not Fail,” on Friday, October 10 at the Reactive Summit in Austin, TX. Click here to register.
Hugh has a long career building applications that evolved slowly, that inefficiently used their infrastructure, and that were brittle and prone to failure. That all changed when we started building reactive, asynchronous, actor-based systems. This radically new way of building applications rocked his world. As an added benefit, building application systems became way more fun than it had ever been. Now he is focused on helping others to discover the significant advantages and joys of building responsive, resilient, elastic, message-based applications.
