Microservices at Scale: How to Reduce Overhead and Increase Developer Productivity—Even with 100s of Services


Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title

As a cloud native application grows in size—more microservices, more dependencies, more teams—there’s a corresponding increase in…

Complexity: Over time, the application becomes a lot harder for a single developer to reason about and contribute to. Staying on top of READMEs and managing cross-team communication is practically a full-time job.

Scaling challenges: The reality of building, deploying, and testing a 100+ service distributed application means developers are going to spend a lot of time sitting around waiting.

But it doesn’t have to end up this way, and there are concrete steps that DevOps engineers can take to keep their developers moving quickly even as an application grows. In this webinar, we’ll show you how to use open source products to: 

  • Make it easy for your developers to code and run on-demand tests against a production-like environment—without having to constantly deal with the complexity that comes with a large application
  • Codify the relationship between all your services and tests, making your system self-documented and easy to understand
  • Keep your integration tests running fast so that devs can more easily write and debug their tests and get the quick feedback loops they need
  • Facilitate remote, in-cluster development and give every developer their own isolated namespace—and never again ask a developer to deploy the application on their laptop

What You’ll Learn in This Webinar

You’ve probably written a hundred abstracts in your day, but have you come up with a template that really seems to resonate? Go back through your past webinar inventory and see what events produced the most registrants. Sure – this will vary by topic but what got their attention initially was the description you wrote.

Paint a mental image of the benefits of attending your webinar. Often times this can be summarized in the title of your event. Your prospects may not even make it to the body of the message, so get your point across immediately.  Capture their attention, pique their interest, and push them towards the desired action (i.e. signing up for your event). You have to make them focus and you have to do it fast. Using an active voice and bullet points is great way to do this.

Always add key takeaways. Something like this....In this session, you’ll learn about:

  • You know you’ve cringed at misspellings and improper grammar before, so don’t get caught making the same mistake.
  • Get a second or even third set of eyes to review your work.
  • It reflects on your professionalism even if it has nothing to do with your event.
