Microservices are a rapidly expanding architecture for breaking down single “monolithic” APIs into many smaller API services. This can be seen as the next major leap of the API economy. Instead of products and companies publishing a single API, single technology stack, and single database which require overhauling for updates, security, or scalability – each microservice has its own technology stack – enabling dev teams to decouple services and adapt / deploy faster.

Join us at API World for a 2-day Microservices Conference covering topics from the technology and implementation to the business cases, costs, and long-term strategy. The Microservices Conference is produced in conjunction with API Academy.

Who Attends

Developers / Engineers

Most of the talks and workshops in the Microservices Conference are technical and target a developer audience. These talks will range from introductory to mid-level practitioners.

API Executives

How does microservices architecture fit into your technology strategy? The microservices conference includes talks targeting API managers and executives.

API Startups & Entrepreneurs

If you are an API-centric startup, you need to understand the holistic role microservices will play in your infrastructure or API portal offerings.
