Tallahassee, Fla. – Local business professionals and technology enthusiasts will have the opportunity to learn about the microservices architecture for developing software at the Tallahassee Technology (TalTech) Alliance luncheon on Wednesday, March 16, at the Capital City Country Club.
Sogeti Tallahassee’s Senior Manager Consultant Chris Rivera will provide attendees with an entry-level overview of what makes up microservices software, what can be accomplished by using it and how it can help businesses and organizations succeed in the long run. Rivera has over 10 years of technology experience working with all aspects of the software development lifecycle and is currently working as a software architect.
Lately, the increasingly popular microservices architecture has become the preferred method for application developers due to its maintainability and scalability. It is particularly useful when creating software to be compatible with a variety of platforms such as a website, mobile app or wearable technology because of its ability to scale individual modules of the application without having to restructure it entirely. Understanding how to use the microservices architecture can save a business or organization valuable time and money.
“Tallahassee was recently designated by the White House as a “TechHire Community” with the goal of training 450 Tallahassee residents in tech jobs by 2020; TalTech is a proud partner in making this happen and our regular informational luncheons will help contribute to this goal,” said TalTech Chair Ryan Aughtry. “We are excited to hear from Chris, who will share important insight on the useful microservices design structure and help residents understand the process behind creating applications that are adaptable to different devices – a key factor in our increasingly mobile world.”
The TalTech luncheon will take place Wednesday from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Capital City Country Club, located at 1601 Golf Terrace Dr. There is no cost for TalTech members; non-members pay $20. Those interested in joining may sign up for membership at the luncheon. For more information on TalTech luncheons or to register to attend, visit www.taltech.org.
