A programming junkie and computer history aficionado, Tomer's been around the block a few times before settling in at WeWork.
Over the years he's built any number of (predominantly back-end) systems, cofounded two major Israeli user groups (Java.IL and Underscore), organized an annual Scala conference (Scalapeño) and is a recurring speaker at software conferences.
He secretly still hopes to realize his childhood dream of becoming a lion tamer.
SOA has been around for decades, and its latest iteration - microservices - for a while now. Just five years ago microservices were hip, dominating the agenda at conferences; now we almost take them for granted. With microservice-focused conference talks losing steam, the time is ripe to consider what we, as an industry, can learn from the microservice disruption; more importantly, we have a golden opportunity to consider what we have yet to learn!
In this talk I'll analyse the lessons hammered into us as we've adopted microservices, and take a hard look at the challenges I believe we still struggle with as an industry. If you're not doing microservices you'll leave the room knowing where the pains will come from; if you are, you will leave with ideas and leads on mitigating these pains.
