Meet Jamie. Her team is building a new feature for a human resources application. It's going to make vacation requests so much more fun - almost as fun as the vacation itself!

But there's just one problem.

That HR application is a monolith. So Jamie sets out to figure out how she can build her service as a microservice. She thinks about managing the APIs that the monolith will use. She thinks about the persistence layer her application will need. She thinks about how she will secure her application. She thinks about how she will manage performance - oh the spikes of traffic before major holiday weekends!

You can probably guess where Jamie found such a platform that would support all her requirements (hint: Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, and Cloud Foundry). But in this talk, Dormain Drewitz and Cornelia Daviswill take you through the surprising twists and turns of how she got there. After all, Spring Boot makes it easy to make stand-alone Spring applications and Spring Cloud provides the scaffolding to coordinate distributed Boot apps, but what about API management? Performance monitoring? Persistence? It takes an ecosystem to complete a microservices platform.
