A key element of any healthy API program is the ability to upgrade and migrate existing services in your ecosystem without causing fatal service disruptions. It takes a concerted effort to safely and successfully complete API migrations, and organizations that can consistently upgrade their running systems share a common set of skills and employ similar techniques. Mike Amundsen explains four common principles of successful migrations: one brick at a time, refactoring your landscape, interfaces are forever, and support instant reversibility. He then demonstrates how to use the STAR method to safely and effectively migrate your existing IT infrastructure to a microservice platform—all without interrupting your current IT services. Join in to discover the power of the STAR method for stabilizing the existing interface, transforming the services behind the interface, adding new functionality to the interface, and rinsing and repeating. Along the way, you’ll learn to leverage observability patterns to monitor migration progress and learn how to use the STAR method for any kind of transformation or migration task.
