µCon: The Microservices eXchange returns 13-14 April 2021.

Join us for two community-focused days where you'll connect with experts and likeminded developers.

Share the challenges you are facing and discover how other teams have adopted microservices as you learn and share alongside engineers from around the globe.

Since 2014 µCon has been the go‑to conference for vendor‑neutral conversations about Microservices, and once again you'll have the chance to learn from leading experts of the Microservices world — with VIP keynotes to be announced shortly.

This year’s µCon: The Microservices eXchange will take place entirely online.

Featuring two day of expert-led talks plus breakout spaces for getting to know your fellow developers.

At Skills Matter, we’ve chosen to see the events of the past year as a challenge to make our content and community more inclusive and accessible to all. Beyond the current COVID‑19 pandemic, we have a vision of a community where knowledge sharing and skills transfer are not limited by physical barriers.

We are excited about the opportunity to truly welcome the international Microservices community to this year’s µCon. We hope to see you there!

Dev Faster with Contract Driven API Development

Contract Driven API Development to the rescue! Contract Driven API’s enable independent teams (humans) to collaborate while maintaining consistency. This approach can also reduce handwritten code and save weeks of time.

In this talk we look at how to put API’s at the center of your development, how to generate boilerplate code and tests, and get everything into a pipeline for continuous delivery.

Jeremy Davis

Jeremy Davis is a Chief Architect for App Dev Technologies at Red Hat. He has written lot of code in C, C#, Groovy, JavaScript, Objective-C, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, Visual Basic, and Java (mostly in Java.)

He currently co-leads Red Hat’s Application Development Community of Practice, and previously led Red Hat's Microservices Community of Practice and the Business Rules and Workflow SME group. He has recently spent a lot of time with Reactive programming and event driven architecture.

He used to spend a lot of time on airplanes.

Event-Driven Security Detection and Remediation as Code

This architectural pattern can also be applied to security as code. When applying this event-driven security architecture pattern, you can automatically detect security devitations and trigger automated security remediations. This security infrastructure can be defined as code and deployed as part of a continuous delivery pipeline.

In this session, Paul Duvall, a founder and former CTO of an AWS Premier Consulting Provider and an AWS DevTools Hero, will discuss and demonstrate scalable architectures that integrate Amazon EventBridge, AWS Config Rules, AWS Lambda, AWS Systems Manager, and AWS Step Functions to detect and remediate security deviations across an AWS environment. What’s more, you will see how to automate the deployment pipeline that provisions these security resources as code.

Paul Duvall
