Microservice architecture, a programming languages perspective

Microservice architecture, a programming languages perspective

Microservice architectures have taken over the industry, and with the rise of cluster schedulers and serverless the envelope is being pushed even further. However while tools like microservices, containers, and schedulers were designed to solve problems associated with the systems of old, they introduce many others like API migrations, service dependencies, and deployment automation. In this talk we will explore these new challenges and see how curiously, these system-level concerns can be tackled with some inspiration from the programming languages community, viewing the world of microservices through the lens of type systems and language runtimes.
