DevNet is Cisco’s developer program through which external developers and partners interface, experiment and innovate using Cisco technologies, products and APIs. DevNet offers multiple services to developers. As DevNet continued to grow, there was a need to independently scale up services to accommodate the growing pool of DevNet developers and rapidly add more services to keep developers engaged and satisfied. Meeting these requirements in an architecture made of multiple monolithic services is expensive and slow, so we knew it was time to embark on our journey to transform our offering into microservices. This presentation will detail the difficult failures our transformation had to overcome in order to move from a traditional web application to a platform for service creation, training, and development. Through the sharing of successful patterns and best practices, attendees will have the opportunity to learn from our mistakes, to help them on their own Cloud Transformation journey.
