This is a follow up to my previous post on my favourite talks at Craft Conf. A tweet from Werner Vogels the CTO of AWS reminded me that I’d also missed Adrian Trenaman’s talk. Adrian’s talk is on Scaling Micro-Services at Gilt. I got a chance to watch the stream last night and its a great example of how they turned a huge Rails / Postgres monolith into over 250 micro services mainly using Scala.

2 weeks ago I was leaving Budapest after a fun week with two of my colleagues. We were attending Craft Conf, which is a 2-day multi track conference on software craftsmanship.
In Budapest I was also working with Anne on Force12.io which we’re launching this Thursday (14th May). Force12 is a container scheduler that provides auto scaling. On Thursday we’re launching a demo of Force12 running on EC2 Container Service.
