Node is not a toy anymore! Node is powering your production apps and you are struggling with the complexity, bugs and feature requests you need. You just don’t know how to maintain your app anymore. You’re scared you have created the kraken that will engulf your entire development team!

Microservices architecture has existed for as long as monolithic applications became a common problem. With the DevOps revolution, it is the time to seriously consider building microservice architectures with node. This talk will share strategies on how to split up your monolithic apps and show you how to deploy node microservices using Docker & Swarm. We will get hands-on with a sample app, walk step-by-step on how to change the app’s architecture and deploy it to the cloud.
