In this talk I'll give a brief overview of how the concept of software architecture has evolved over the last 50 years, from centralized monolithic systems to today's highly distributed cloud-based applications. Then I'll discuss some of the key challenges facing the development of cloud native applications, with a focus on the microservice architectural style and its supporting practices and technologies.
