Microservices Out In the Wild

Microservices are no longer just for API developers. Fitch Solutions has been building API microservices for years while maintaining a monolithic front-end application architecture. In this talk, Rashid will describe how to successfully migrate to full-stack microservices serving not only the APIs, but also the web components necessary to deliver the features to customers.

The main areas of concern will include:

  • How a service mesh helped route traffic within Kubernetes to support full-stack services.
  • How web components allowed Fitch Solutions to mix and match heterogeneous UI technologies
  • How developing along service context boundaries increased their productivity by removing inter-team dependencies
  • How continuous integration tools have automated security checks that were previously manual
  • How this transition will enable developers to release multiple times per day
  • How smaller, more discrete deliverables have improved the resiliency, maintainability and extensibility of the Fitch Connect system
