How the BBC uses microservices to power its websites and apps

The BBC’s websites and mobile apps are used by hundreds of millions of people each week. News, video, entertainment and much more is offered in dozens of languages to users around the world. But this breadth of content and audience size has meant some big scaling challenges. To solve this, the BBC has embraced microservices: small, easy-to-understand systems that can easily scale and combine to create powerful solutions.

In this talk, Matthew will describe how the BBC has designed and built its microservices architecture. Principles such as simplicity and sharing, combined with technology such as Node.JS and the cloud, have created a compelling approach: microservices that are quick and easy to make, fast and reliable, and globally scalable. The talk will look at how the BBC architects and runs its microservices, including the lessons learned, and what the future holds next.
