DjangoCon Europe 2016 - Django Microservices Made Easy

Speaker: Paul Hallett (twitter) works for Lyst.


Where monolithic applications are a Death Star that manages everything, but if it breaks, everything is broken, microservices are like a fleet of X-Wing Fighters: they are a fleet of small, independant, highly specialized vehicles

Problems and Solutions

  • Shared Databases: Don't. Isolate and decouple your dependencies.
  • Inconsistent Project Structures: write project templates for unified deployment/testing/error logging approaches (cookiecutter)
  • Inconsistent HTTP Interfaces: Include Clients and Client Guidelines
  • Consistent Deployment: Use Empire, a heroku-like interface for deployment

Automate even more, auto-generate even more … and profit.
