I am speaking today at NYC Code Camp 7. My talk is Architecture Patterns for Building Cloud-Native Applications here is the abstract:
Just because we get software to run on cloud infrastructure does not make it a good idea. To truly take advantage of the cloud we need to build cloud-native applications. The architecture of a cloud-native application is different than the architecture of a traditional application, an idea we will explore since it can impact costs, availability, and scalability. We will examine several key architecture patterns that help unlock cloud-native benefits, spanning computation, database, and resource-focused patterns. By the end of the talk you should appreciate how cloud architecture is more demanding than you might be accustomed to, but with high payoff such as handling failure without downtime, scaling arbitrarily, and allowing aggressive cost-optimization.
