Speaker: Andrew Morgan, Principal Product Marketing Manager, MongoDB
Level: 100 (Beginner)
Organizations are building their applications around microservice architectures because of the flexibility, speed of delivery, and maintainability they deliver. Want to try out MongoDB on your laptop? Execute a single command and you have a lightweight, self-contained sandbox; another command removes all trace when you're done. Replicate your complete application for your development, test, operations, and support teams. This session introduces you to technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, and Kafka, which are driving the microservices revolution. Learn about containers and orchestration – and most importantly, how to exploit them for stateful services such as MongoDB.
What You Will Learn:
- Why organizations are choosing to use microservice architectures, what benefits they deliver, and when they should - or shouldn't - be used.
- Technologies that are used to build microservices – including containers, orchestration and messaging systems.
- Why MongoDB is a good fit for microservices and what special steps need to be taken to make them work well together.
