Getting Started with Zuul

It’s been a while since my last post! I recently have been reading a lot about the idea of “API management” or an “API gateway”. There’s a lot of commercial offerings in this field. Many of them promise you (to some extend) ultimate flexibility and endless possibilities. My preference is for “lean and mean” approaches where I can pick the building blocks that I need. In the long run, that offers more flexibility. After all, you could replace building blocks. Having small building blocks makes it less tempting to put any kind of business logic in such a gateway. Doing that must sooner or later lead to some kind of vendor lock-in.

JBCNConf & Voxxed Days LU

Wow, that was a busy and inspiring week! In one week, I’ve visited two conferences in two different countries to give talks on two different subjects. But the most inspiring part came from attending other sessions. I’ll highlight one session from both conferences.

Blah blah Microservices blah blah

As a closing keynote on the second day of Jfokus, Jonas Bonér took the stage under the very clarifying title “Blah blah Microservices blah blah”, which turned out to mean “From microliths to microsystems”.

Jfokus, Day 2

The second day of Jfokus is just as action-packed as the first one. However, part of the action is me giving two talks. Both of them scheduled today, so a little less time for attending other sessions and blogging about them. I did attend some other sessions after lunch time, on which I’ll report below.
