DEV Talks is designed for sharing knowledge and experience. It covers two advanced industry topics and serves as a platform for learning the latest in IT and engaging in discussions and networking with peers. We are bringing top-notch lecturers from Authority Partners, two hours of interesting topics, drinks, and food, as well as networking.


First Talk

She has joined Authority Partners right after, where she has been working for almost six years.

“Building MVP with Microservice Architecture”

How many times have you got a chance to build a product from scratch and deliver it in iterations within the short deadline? This topic describes the personal experience of building MVP from just a few user stories, using a microservice architecture with both good and bad sides. This lecture will cover – the questions that might be helpful when choosing between the latest technology stack and monolith ‘just get it done’ architecture; the elaboration on challenges using a microservice architecture in the very first phase of software; and pros and cons.

In the end, if we add even the smallest functionality to defined MVP, then we can ask ourselves, how minimal is the minimum?
