Konferenzraum 1.801

Fed up with stop and go in your data center? Why not shift into overdrive and pull into the fast lane? Learn how AutoScout24 are building their Autobahn in the cloud to become the market leader in Europe's vehicle classified business.
Reinventing themselves by making a radical transition from monoliths to microservices, from .NET on Windows to Scala on Linux, from data center to AWS and from built by devs and run by ops to a devops mindset.
While the current stack keeps running, ever more microservices will go live as you listen to stories from the trenches.
Key takeaways from this talk include: How to...
… become cloud native
… evolve the architecture
… create “you build it you run it” teams
… involve business people in the transformation
