JCON 2020: Standardizing microservice development

Nortal’s Partner and Chief Architect, Priit Liivak, took the digital stage at JCON-ONLINE 2020 Java community conference and shared his experience in utilizing and distributing developer scripts across numerous microservices with Git Submodules and uncovered the benefits that came along.

It’s common to give development teams a lot of autonomy to choose their own technologies and processes to follow. With many microservices, this leads to duplication in build scripts and CI configurations that, in turn, damages maintainability. Priit presents ways to standardize several aspects of microservice development without removing the autonomy from development teams. Over the years, he has accumulated experience in unifying build scripts, CI configuration, documentation, and monitoring to improve developer productivity.

If you are not familiar with the technique or just want to learn a few new tricks for standardizing development using your developer scripts, this is the talk for you.
