Felix Müller: Microservice Documentation - How not to lose your mind with too many microservices 

Nowadays microservices are an established architecture style. By implementing this new challenges arise: you need a high degree of automation and knowledge sharing in your organization. Knowledge about functions, dependencies, infrastructure components and api capabilities is widely spread over multiple teams.

How does a developer know which services are already in production? And with which functionalities? Where is the source code and corresponding build chain? Who is responsible for answering product related questions?

In this talk you will learn about possible solutions for service and api discovery with integrated documentation.

Andrea Stubbe: APIs, the pretty face of your microservice

Developers are people, too! And just like everyone else, they do like a good user experience. The times where APIs were just an afterthought, an extension to your actual product, are over. APIs are the new user interface. Come and see how user interface design principles can help you look at your APIs from a different viewpoint. 

Carsten Jacob: Applying tenant specific runtime configurations to a Microservice architecture  

Two years ago the DevOps team behind the Legaltech online service Smartlaw decided to migrate from a monolithic architecture to Microservices. The resulting Smartlaw platform is designed to serve multiple tenants with different brandings, business models and markets by a single operational instance. This requires to switch the behavior and appearance of the application per request. The settings of a tenant, for example, the look and feel, activated features, connected 3rd party services or the customer journey, have to be configurable at runtime. The talk gives an overview of the challenges and explains how the Smartlaw team approached the solution as well as integrated it into the architecture based on Microservices. It describes the data model for tenant specific configurations and the infrastructure for a runtime distribution and resolution. A summary of the lessons learned concludes the talk.
