Monoliths suffer from many limitations; most prominently maintainability and flexibility are hampered by the intertwining of software modules. In addition, cloud deployments lose efficiency due to the rigid scalability of monolithic software.
Transitioning to a microservice architecture is crucial for companies in highly-competitive markets, where agility and flexibility of software systems become critical assets to establish leadership. Here, microservices can play a central role. They can support agility, streamline integration and enable more flexible solutions. However, these benefits come at a cost: an increased complexity that calls for a proportional improvement of techniques for software construction and advanced engineering practices from the Agile community.
Success and failure stories about microservice adoption are hardly found in the literature. To address the current uncertainties including a limited documentation of best-practice and benefits, the Second Workshop on Agility with Microservices Programming (AMP2021) co-located with XP2021 aims to collect experiences and studies on microservice architectures, report best practices but also failure cases, and build a community knowledge base from previous errors and successes.
The workshop is organised with the official support of the Microservices Community, an international non-profit organisation interested in the sharing of knowledge and the fostering of collaborations about microservices.
Topics of Interest
The second edition of the AMP workshop aims to continue the success of its previous edition at XP2020 in collecting original work on the science and engineering of programming microservices, and in particular the following topics:
Submissions based on empirical studies conducted in industry-academia collaboration are particularly encouraged.
Submissions will be evaluated by at least three members of the program committee, mostly based on soundness, significance, novelty, clarity and potential to contribute to discussion.
Submissions to AMP 2021 must conform to the LNBIP formatting and submission instructions. Authors should consult Springer’s author guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers.
AMP 2021 seeks original contributions of the following types:
Revised and selected contributions will be included in a separate volume of the XP 2021 conference proceedings, published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP).
