Taming a behemoth: Strangler Transformation

Authority Partners Management System, aka APMS, is an internal enterprise application developed over a decade. It is now going through a complete transformation with the final goal to create a modern web application with a cloud-native micro-service backend and a modular micro-frontend. In this quest, DevOps is the main driving factor. During this session, we will discuss how modern DevOps principles and a number of technologies are used to execute strangler patterns.
