The home team sits down with Maxim Fateev, CEO and cofounder of Temporal Technologies, and Dominik Tornow, Principal Engineer at Temporal, to talk all things microservices. What are the tradeoffs in moving from monolith to microservices, and is the pendulum swinging back toward bigger, less complex architectures? Plus, why is state so hard to nail down?
Temporal Technologies is a scalable open-source platform for developers to build and run reliable cloud applications.
ICYMI, here’s a post we wrote with Ryland Goldstein, Head of Product at Temporal, discussing how software engineering has shifted from a monolithic to a microservices model—thereby introducing a whole new set of challenges for software engineers.
Maxim, who grew up in Russia, is renowned in the microservices world. He spent decades architecting mission-critical systems at MSFT, Amazon, and Uber, where he designed Cadence and spun it out into Temporal. Netflix, Descript, Instacart, Datadog, Snap, and plenty more are all betting their critical systems on Temporal’s OSS technology, so Maxim has a dedicated following in the dev community.
Dominik’s father is a nuclear physicist, so Dominik had early access to computers growing up in Germany. His professional path led him from SAP in Germany to SAP in Palo Alto, then to Cisco, and finally to Temporal.
Replay, Temporal’s inaugural developer experience conference, is happening IRL from August 25-26, 2022 in Seattle. Check it out!
