Multi-cloud Microservices: Separating Fact from Fiction

Implementing an architecture across multi-cloud promises removing vendor lockin and the ability to shift load during cloud provider specific outages, but is it real? Is a multi-cloud architecture truly viable? Join an InfoQ panel discussion with several leaders in the industry where these topics are discussed and patterns in use today are explained.

Embracing Production: Make Yourself At Home

Being on-call can be intimidating, whether it's your first time carrying a pager or you’re new to the system. Operating distributed systems in production actually makes developers more effective at delivering features: it creates feedback loops by giving essential insights into the interactions of dependencies with your system. Join the roundtable to learn from industry leaders and fellow practitioners about how they embrace production. We’ll also discuss ways to make it easier for others to onboard and keep the system up and running.

Accelerating the software side of human progress

Brought to you by InfoQ

Senior software developers rely on the InfoQ community to keep ahead of the adoption curve. One of the main reasons software architects and engineers tell us they keep coming back to InfoQ is because they trust the information provided and selected by their peers.

We’ve been helping software development teams adopt new technologies and practices for over 15 years through InfoQ articles, news items, podcasts, tech talks, trends reports and QCon software development conferences. Join a community of senior software engineers, architects and team leads and never miss out on important trends.

Frequently asked questions

InfoQ Live will feature sponsored Roundtables: live panel discussions between software practitioners where attendees can ask their own questions.

Just type your question in the chat during the presentation or during the couple of minutes preceding the Q&A time and we'll share the questions with the speaker during the Q&A dedicated  time.  

Registered attendees will get access to the talk recordings included in their ticket after the event. Recordings for the Roundtables will be accessible about 48 hours after the event. Recordings will remain available for a duration of 30 days.
