Break up Monoliths and lay them to REST!


Continuously delivering products requires agile teams able to blend Dev, QA & OPS, which leads to a DevOps organization. To move in that path developers and operation teams should build the underlying infrastructure, DevOps pipelines and weave and interface them through a good API platform. The key to breaking up Monoliths to microservices drives design and architecture to build contracts and processes across these applications. The talk focuses on what are the core priciples of breaking down applications and how API's play a key role in this. The talk also focuses on some of the strategies expressed by Martin Fowler and how it aids moving to DevOps Strategies used for microservices and how API's help in each of these to move to DevOps: - Minimize Dependency on the Monolith. - Decouple Capability and not Code. - Go Macro First, then Micro. APIs enable automation, drive consistency, efficiency, and cost-savings. Using APIs in application development can help organizations gain more value from DevOps since APIs can be extensively reused and consumed. This can free up future resources, enabling consistency and innovation. API strategy can also help companies to move to be cloud-native, drive the DevOps pipeline and solve legacy system problems though 'everything as code' mindset.
