Elastic scaling in a (micro)service oriented architecture

Splitting an application up into multiple independent services can be a good way to keep it scaling and ensure stability and developer productivity in larger, growing teams. But just splitting the codebase, creating APIs and deploying the code on some servers is not enough, somehow your services need to know where and how other services are accessible. Classical approaches like hardcoding everything in every service or having a central load-balancer can quickly lead to problems in terms of scalability and maintainability. In this talk I’ll show how we at ResearchGate tackled this challenge. With the help of tools like Consul and haproxy we created a setup that allows us to quickly boot and shutdown services. This ensures that all servers are utilized optimally and load spikes can be reacted upon quickly and automatically.

Learned a lot of new tools, found out about possible solutions to a few problems I'm trying to tackle.
Overall great value for me.

Did not enjoy the fact that you made my coworker climax multiple times during the talk and went to the bathroom for an hour after. Apart from that this talk was legendary and should be mandatory in every team. I am now off to build you a shrine.

For me, this was one of the best talks of the conference. It was very structured, detail-rich and to the point. I really like your style of presenting content! This talk makes me want to invest (more) time in everything around docker infrastructure.
