µCon 2018

Speed of change matters to anyone building software. Many engineering teams have identified Microservices as an important component of this architectural approach to designing more flexible systems that can meet the needs of their fast changing businesses. Applying this approach however, is hard. And ideas and practices are still very much evolving. To help with that, we've launched muCon - a conference to learn about emerging technologies and approaches, share challenges and evolve practices and ideas.
