codecentric mittendrin

Meetups, Stammtische, Hackathons, User Groups: Die codecentric ist weit mehr als die Summe ihrer Mitarbeiter und Projekte.

Hinter jeder erfolgreichen Software steht eine starke Community

Wissensvermittlung, Nachwuchsförderung und der fachliche Austausch auf Augenhöhe sind für uns Herzensangelegenheiten. Wir sind der Meinung: Geteilte Innovationsfreude ist doppelte Innovationsfreude.

Deshalb mischen sich codecentric-Mitarbeiter und -Mitarbeiterinnen gerne unter die Community – ob als Gastgeber, Redner oder Organisatoren diverser Veranstaltungen. Treffen Sie uns auf einem der folgenden Events!

Microservices with Clojure

Microservices are especially characterized by their autonomy: the services are as loosely coupled as possible. For this reason, a microservice architecture allows different technologies to be deployed that are exactly suitable for the problem which needs to be solved and the skill set of the software engineer. In such an environment, the benefits of a modern language like Clojure can be invaluable: short and precise code, concurrent processing, and direct support for asynchronous programming.

However, there are also particular challenges when dealing with microservices: How can a project be created with as little overhead as possible? How can services communicate with each other? How can I protect my service when other services fail? And once a service has been created, how can I deploy and monitor it?

In this talk we will introduce the participants to Clojure step by step and, with the help of an example, introduce the Clojure libraries which can be used in order to tackle the previously stated challenges.
