Airbnb's Great Migration: Building Services at Scale
So you’ve decided to migrate from monolith to microservices, what next? Such a redesign to service-oriented architecture (SOA) is a long, arduous journey that benefits from an incremental, iterative approach.

This talk tells the story of Airbnb's journey focusing on how Airbnb is building, operating, and scaling its expanding network of services and changes to its organization to support the migration.
