NightHacking Gosling Recording Wrap-up

· Java Zone

Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

Finished the live stream with James Gosling this morning, and have posted it in all the usual places including the new NightHacking website and the Java Youtube channel. I ended up editing out a few small portions due to feedback in the audio recording, but overall it came out pretty good.

Here is an embedded player where you can view the video inline:

A big thanks to all the folks at Liquid Robotics who let me hang out in their facility this week and watch them go about their (very cool) business. It is awesome to see a practical application of the technology you are working hard to build and promote, and no one knows Java better than James.

I am stepping up my video schedule to have at least 1 new video each month with a stretch goal of 1 every 2 weeks. The next confirmed stop is at the J-Fall conference in a couple weeks where I will be interviewing several folks including Saskia who runs the Devoxx4Kids Netherlands event.
