Moving from a Monolith to Microservices based on Node.js at Walmart

Wednesday 18 Jan 2017 from 5:30pm - 7:30pm

Hi Nodesters! We've got great talks this month! NOTE THE LOCATION at Shutterstock!!!*

Kevin Stevens - Moving from a Monolith to Microservices based on Node.js at Walmart!

Kevin will discuss how Walmart's grocery business moved from a monolithic Java/JSP based stack to a stateless microservices Node.js stack while growing 150x and adding new features. In particular, I will talk about the challenges we faced, what went well, what didn't go well, and what mistakes could have been avoided. 

Matt Walters - Many repos? Monorepos? How about a Metarepo? Tools for building distributed systems and libraries.  

Everybody keeps debating about whether you should have a monorepo or many repos. Everything is pulled together! ... But I don't want to pull everything. You just pull what you need! ... But I forgot to pull something. :(

Why not have both? Matt will give a little back story then show how new tools he's developing work great for building distributed systems with microservices and sites galore, as well as libraries with modular parts! Get ready to get meta AND loopy! 

David Okun - API in 5 minutes - Loopback (and more!)

Web APIs are hard. Now, thanks to Loopback, they don't have to be. In this talk, I'll show you (yes! you!) how you can have a RESTful web service up in minutes to support any application you want to make - mobile, Angular, anything - and how you can build on it to make it do whatever you need it to.

More Lightning Talks Spots Available! Reach out with topics to present!

See you there!
