Microservices for managers

Microservices for managers

New function in minutes not months.

This one-day workshop provides a grounding in microservices for technical managers tasked with leading teams through a Cloud Native migration and microservices implementation.

Combining a thorough review of the core concepts with insights and best practices, the program offers managers the opportunity to consider:

  • How microservices align with organizational strategy
  • How best to manage the transition to microservices
  • How to excite and inspire colleagues to create a microservices culture  

Who should attend?

The program is designed for experienced technical managers who are leading teams of engineers and developers on a Cloud Native journey which includes the implementation of microservices.

It does not require any foundation knowledge of microservices, however a background in software engineering or architecture is an advantage.

The program is also suitable for managers who:

  • Are considering implementing microservices
  • Want to gain an overview of microservices, the benefits they can bring, and the pitfalls surrounding implementation.

What can I expect fromthe course?

The workshop will be highly interactive and encourage managers to contribute their experiences and participate in activities and exercises designed to develop their understanding of microservices.

Managers will leave with a plan for engaging and inspiring their team and applying what they have learnt to implement microservices.
