Phil Calcado shares the toolkit and strategy SoundCloud uses to keep its microservices explosion manageable. He presents what they do about the operations overhead, how they spread DevOps skills across teams to support the “you build it, you run it” vision, how they deal with breaking changes and asynchronous behaviors, and how they deal with chatty interactions.
Phil Calcado is the Director of Core Engineering at SoundCloud, and his team is responsible for “keeping the trains running” in our microservices architecture. Before that he was the Director of Product Engineering at SoundCloud, and before joining SoundCloud he was a Lead Consultant for ThoughtWorks in Australia and the UK.
