O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference 2017 - London, UK

Video Description

What was SACON London 2017? It was Neha Narkhede's (Confluent) riveting keynote on Apache Kafka and the rise of the streaming platform. It was Murat Erder's (Deutsche Bank) thought-provoking answer to how software architects should approach data in the age of Agile, big data, and the cloud. It was Clarence Bakirtzidis' (Elabor8) illuminating tutorial on creating Docker-based production environments. These three leaders and 70+ more of the world's top software architects, engineers, CTO's, and CIO's presented at SACON London 2017—and this video lets you hear them all.

You'll see the seven keynotes from luminaries like James Lewis (ThoughtWorks) and Yiannis Kanellopoulos (Software Improvement Group). You'll gain access to each of the six tutorials, including one on serverless architecture and one on developing resilient microservices with Kubernetes and Envoy. And you'll be able to watch all of the technical sessions, including talks on software architecture fundamentals (e.g., how to plan ahead for persistent memory by Intel's Rob Dickinson); talks on microservices (e.g., how to architect and secure IoT platforms with microservices by Mainflux's Drasko Draskovic); talks on distributed architecture (e.g., Nikhil Barthwal on how Jet.com implements event-driven microservices using F#); talks on DevOps (e.g., ThoughtWorks' Maria Gomez on CQRS and event sourcing); talks on integration architecture (e.g., Google's Bryan Moyles on Kubernetes best practices); and other talks on business skills, scale, reactive, security, UX design, and optimization.

SACON London 2017 was a unique event, covering the full scope of a software architect's job in breadth, depth, and detail. If software architecture plays any part in your business—and in today's world it most likely does—then this video compilation is for you.
