muCon London 2018 - Call for Papers
muCon Lonon 2018
Monday 5th Tuesday 6th November 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.

Join µCon 2018 to learn how other teams have adopted microservices and what they learned along the way. Help shape the conversation in discussions with some of the worlds leading architects and microservices experts. Share the challenges you are facing, the technologies you are exploring and the skills you have gained with 400 other engineers passionate about creating highly flexible systems that rock. Follow us at #muCon for all the latest updates on the conference!
