This slide deck is basically my take on the future development of microservices. It is not so much a technological prediction as a tactical prediction.
It starts with taking stock of IT: Where do we come from, where are we right now and what are the trends that (most likely) will shape our future? I try to address those issues from several points of view, not necessarily creating a totally consistent picture of IT (which imo is not possible anyway), but trying to point out the most influential drivers of the past, today and the future.
Then I try to locate microservices in that picture with mutliple angles - where they blend in. Having done that, I try to show how microservices will evolve in the future based on my observations. And in order to complete the journey, based on the anticipated future of microservices, I try to give a few recommendations for microservices developers of today how to prepare for that evolution.
While - as written in the beginning - this is my take on the evolution of microservices and the voice track is missing, I still hope that it is a bit helpful and delivers some food for thought.
