If you’re a developer writing code, chances are that you’re working on a monolithic application and you’re having difficulty changing, testing, and committing updates simply because it requires that much time to work through the large code base. When you’ve figured all of that out, where will you deploy?

Luckily, with the advent of platforms like Cloud Foundry there is an easy place to deploy your code using the buildpacks that exist. As you refactor your monolith into microservices and tie everything together with APIs there are new challenges that arise. How can I make sure my new microservice is event-driven?How can my microservice accept input from different sources without changing the code?

In this session you’ll learn:

– How to deploy ultralight microservices to Cloud Foundry using the binary buildpack;
– What Microgateways are and how to use them;
– How to deploy those to Cloud Foundry.
