How building a portable escape room made me a better microservices developer

I built a portable IoT escape room, and it changed how I think about microservice development!


In this session, we'll uncover unexpected parallels between crafting intricate escape room puzzles and architecting resilient, scalable microservices. Explore how the lessons learned from escape room design translate into invaluable guidance for Domain-Driven Design (DDD), modularity, communication, scalability, and fault tolerance. Join me for a fun exploration of this odd pairing! Doors will be unlocked at the end - even if the audience can't solve the puzzles.
