Microservices are really beneficial if they're aligned with your business stream of value. When you're considering moving to microservices, make sure they're actually addressing the problems that you're having. Take a look at these past QCon San Francisco presentations so you can assess what is the best move for you or your company. At QCon San Francisco 2020 we plan on inviting practitioners to speak about topics related to microservices. Check back soon to see this year's presentations.

What We Got Wrong: Lessons From the Birth of Microservices

Managing Failure Modes in Microservice Architectures
