Automation is fun. But dealing with the myriad of services that are in the typical company that has been around for a while (can you say "legacy systems" without panicking?) tends to put a crimp in your style. To add insult to injury, automating everything can reduce your ability to clean out the cruft because so many more things need to be changed in order to retire a legacy system.
Enter: the service-oriented architecture. Coming off the back of a year-long effort to put APIs in front of everything, Anchor CTO Matt Palmer will describe why Anchor decided to do all this work, what worked well, what didn't work, the benefits we've seen since the introduction of our new architecture, and how you can make a service-oriented utopia in your own company.
