Thinking Architecturally

Presented by: Nathaniel Schutta
Time: Wednesday 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Rich Hickey once said programmers know the benefits of everything and the trade offs of nothing...an approach that can lead a project down a path of frustrated developers and unhappy customers. As architects though, we must consider the trade offs of every new library, language, pattern or approach...

Don’t Build a Distributed Monolith: How to Avoid Doing Microservices Completely Wrong

Presented by: Jonathan "J." Tower
Time: Thursday 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM

As a consultant, I get to see many systems built by many different developers. Recently, I’ve seen an uptick in the number of systems built with a microservice architecture in mind, but those systems often include a lot of the same mistakes that keep them from working well. In this session...

A Contrarian View of Software Architecture

Presented by: Jeremy Miller
Time: Thursday 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM

I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time the past half decade across multiple companies working with very large, long running enterprise systems. Especially in long running, constantly changing systems, you want the code to be easy to understand, relatively painless to extend or modify, and when...

Application Architecture Patterns

Presented by: Joseph Guadagno
Time: Friday 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM

Architecting an application can be challenging. What do you do to keep your application flexible to ever-constant requirement changes? How do you handle landscape changes (cloud, on-premises, databases)? How do you avoid over-engineering the application? How do I make sure my application plays well...

Clean Architecture with ASP.NET Core 8

Presented by: Steve Smith
Time: Friday 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM

Clean Architecture is a very popular approach for DDD and Microservices, and for good reason. It's not a new approach, and went by other names in the past (e.g. Onion, Hexagonal, Ports-and-Adapters). One of the main benefits of the approach is its focus on business logic and its reduction in...

Expect the Unexpected: Handling Exceptions in Enterprise Applications

Presented by: Kito Mann
Time: Friday 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM

One of the most common reasons for software defects is poor exception handling. The more complex the application, the more difficult it can be to track down the root cause of a bug. An exception at the service or database layer may manifest itself as unpredictable behavior at the user interface...

Harnessing the Power of Asynchronous Messaging and Eventing for Distributed Systems at Scale

Presented by: Eric Boyd
Time: Friday 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM

Distributed applications, microservices solutions and systems at scale depend on In today's era of distributed applications, microservices, and systems at scale, the key to achieving agility, resilience, and scalability lies in mastering the art of asynchronous messaging and eventing. In this...

The Right Database for the Right Job

Presented by: Nuri Halperin
Time: Friday 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Picking a database for your particular purpose is hard, and vendors don't make it easier. So which database is right for which workload? This session breaks down the decision factors into characteristics that let you decide and reason with them on even ground. We will examine the underlying...

CQRS with Event Sourcing using the “Critter Stack”

Presented by: Jeremy Miller
Time: Friday 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Do you have a system where you think would be a good fit for a CQRS architecture that also uses Event Sourcing for at least part of its persistence strategy? Are you intimidated by the potential complexity of that kind of approach? Fear not, using a combination of the Postgresql-backed Marten...

The Micro-Frontend Playbook

Presented by: Marko Skugor
Time: Friday 2:45 PM - 3:45 PM

Micro-frontend architecture can provide a lot of great benefits to team autonomy and can play a crucial role in enabling technical and organizational scalability. At the same time, it also comes with a lot of potential pitfalls and anti-patterns to avoid. In this talk we'll learn how to apply Domain...
