Patterns and Practices for Real-World Event-Driven Microservices

Sign in to queue

Description

Jet.com is an e-commerce startup competing with Amazon. We're heavy users of F#, and have based our architecture around Azure-based event-driven functional microservices. Over the last several months, we've schooled ourselves on what works and what doesn't for F# and microservices. This session will walk you through the lessons we have learned on our way to developing our platform.

    This was an interesting session. It gave me some insight into why C# remains the most popular language in the .NET framework.

    I'm now more intrigued about F# and it's power to accomplish more with less code than using C#. As a trainer, I wish there was some courseware available so I could teach it.

    Very interesting talk about the F# coding style and Microservices practices.

    However the C# examples could been written with less lines (for instance suppressing curly brackets for single statements in "ifs" and "usings") and the "discriminated union" not necessarily "in 4 files" as suggested.

    Plus, having Linq, C# can be very expressive and concise as that F# query.

    If F# is so great, why are there only templates for console apps and libraries in Visual Studio? Why hasn't Microsoft at least added support for ASP.NET MVC?

    Microservices looks like a total disaster if you ask me. I'm so sick of hearing about this hype. What will ThoughtWorks come up next that we have to do?
