Keynote Spotlight: Complex Systems: Microservices and Humans by Katharina Probst, Director of Engineering @Google Cloud Platform

Today many companies employ microservices as an effective way to break down their systems into smaller pieces. Microservices are a powerful way to chunk a system by functionality and team, evolving pieces of the system independently, and achieving better abstraction and encapsulation. But microservices come at the cost of running an often complex distributed system.

"In this talk, I will dive into some best practices that we have learned about what it takes to build, evolve, and operate such systems. Learnings from containers and service meshes, DevOps, Chaos & load testing, and proactively planning for growth are all important to success. In addition, we can apply similar thinking to how the human organization comes into play. By paying attention to the interplay between human and software systems and the challenges this interplay presents, we can set both the system and the people that power it up for success."
Katharina Probst, director of engineering @Google Cloud Platform
