Mark Schwartz is one of my favorite IT authors. He is an enterprise strategist at AWS but was formerly CIO of US Citizenship and Immigration Services.
He has written three books describing the changing role of IT. He describes how IT is no longer simply an order taker and a cost to be minimized. Instead, it’s is a strategic part of the business. The IT organization’s agility is crucial for business success. He also explores the meaning of business value and how agile teams fit into the enterprise. His books provide the broader context and motivation for the adoption of the microservice architecture.
The first book is written for IT leaders and describes how they “must throw off the old attitudes and assumptions and claim their rightful seat at the C-suite table”. Learn more
The second book, which is even better than the first, describes “why and how executives and business leaders must create a shared strategy with their IT organizations to drive innovation, enhance their competitive positioning, increase revenue, and delight customers.” Learn more
The third book explores “what business value means, why it matters, and how it should affect your software development and delivery practices.” Learn more
Microservices.io is brought to you by Chris Richardson. Experienced software architect, author of POJOs in Action, the creator of the original CloudFoundry.com, and the author of Microservices patterns.
Take a look at my Manning LiveProject that teaches you how to develop a service template and microservice chassis.
My virtual bootcamp, distributed data patterns in a microservice architecture, is now open for enrollment!
It covers the key distributed data management patterns including Saga, API Composition, and CQRS.
It consists of video lectures, code labs, and a weekly ask-me-anything video conference repeated in multiple timezones.
The regular price is $395/person but use coupon JUNVCEJE to sign up for $195 (valid until February 1st, 2023). There are deeper discounts for buying multiple seats.
Chris offers numerous resources for learning the microservice architecture.
Chris teaches comprehensive workshops, training classes and bootcamps for executives, architects and developers to help your organization use microservices effectively.
Avoid the pitfalls of adopting microservices and learn essential topics, such as service decomposition and design and how to refactor a monolith to microservices.
