Many organizations start their microservices journey by (re)designing their application architecture and operational infrastructure. We started building our cloud application using this approach. We discovered that this takes a long time.

In this talk, we’ll talk about how we ended up with a different approach when we started thinking about microservices as a workflow, and not an architecture. We’ll talk about our first goal: enabling a single developer to be able to code, ship, and manage a microservice, as quickly as possible. We’ll show how we integrated Kubernetes, Docker, Prometheus, and Envoy to achieve this goal.

Finally, we’ll talk about scaling this initial goal beyond a single developer. We’ll talk about the tradeoffs of this bottoms up approach to the conventional PAAS / service mesh / application architecture strategy, and show how you can get to the same place in the end.
