Darrin SolomonClient Architect, Office of the CTO - Americas
The best part of my job is that I’m always working with the smartest, most innovative and creative people on the planet whose common goal is to do amazing things for their brands with technology. My customers want to build the future; and lately, we’re doing that by deconstructing the monolith.I talk a lot about removing friction. Removing friction in the development process. Removing friction that delays the introduction of new services and capabilities. Removing the friction of innovation. Once we get to “yes, if”, we apply technology and thought patterns that minimize disruption sometimes caused by the creative process.My customers and I create a new API paradigm; we design and implement API lifecycle programs and introduce mobile, IoT and service creation capabilities. We incorporate cutting edge devops principles all the while keeping a mind’s eye on real business objectives.In my mind, microservices are all about velocity. The IT archetypes of stability and efficiency are important, but secondary to velocity. The three pillars need to exist in harmony, and it’s the microservices patterns that bring that balance.I’m not a purest, nor just academic; I am a pragmatist and I apply tech patterns that push the boundaries of the possible
