Bootiful Microservices in a Legacy Environment: Lessons Learned



David Julia describes some patterns that Pivotal Labs have employed over the last two years of building Spring Boot based microservices in the context of legacy systems. He covers tried and true strategies for creating "strangler applications", strategies for moving away from the database as an integration point, and how to start carving off bounded contexts for your new microservices.


David Julia is a long-time Pivotal Labs consultant with experience writing, deploying, and supporting production systems in Ruby, Golang and Java in XP teams for startups, large companies. He's currently focused on helping large enterprises transform their internal development teams to adopt modern agile development, agile software architecture, and a culture of continuous improvement.
