It's an incredible honour that Kevin Webber, CEO of RedElastic, was named a 2016 Lightbend Presenter of the Year!
Before co-founding RedElastic, Kevin was Enterprise Architect and Advocate at Lightbend, specializing in enterprise modernization with Lightbend's Fortune 500 clients. In 2016 Kevin presented multiple webinars for Lightbend that went on to become the most popular of the year. Let's discuss the webinars and how they relate to the wider topic of enterprise modernization, including cloud enablement strategies.
To everyone who tuned in and made these two of the most popular Lightbend webinars of 2016, RedElastic thanks you!
This was Lightbend’s most popular webinar series of 2016! In this series, Kevin Webber teams up with Jonas Bonér – the creator of Akka and co-founder of Lightbend – to explore the historical changes of enterprise systems and the market forces that lead to the microservices architectural pattern.
The series is broken down into three parts:
For architects learning about microservices, this is a great place to start. A lot of effort was put forth to separate the benefits and traits of microservices from the hype surrounding the term.
In this webinar Kevin covers the risk versus reward of migrating a legacy enterprise Java system to a modern microservices architecture. In order to provide clarity around microservices, we must delve into the architecture and engineering of a microservices system. To do this, we cover the following topics:
Only when we have a complete understanding of the microservices ecosystem can we begin to weigh the pros and cons of a large-scale enterprise migration.
Legacy systems are difficult to maintain and enhance during development phases, and difficult to scale and manage at runtime. The webinars guide developers and architects to correct approaches for refactoring enterprise systems in order to take advantage of modern architectural approaches.
