Adapting the 12 Factor App for Microservices


The 12 Factor App has been a great guide to creating scalable and maintainable software-as-a-service apps. However, as we move to microservices, the twelve factors aren’t always an exact fit. For example, the 12 Factor App calls for configuration to be stored in environment variables, yet we suggest that for security they need to be recorded in config files that can be stored in a secure vault.

In this webinar, we go through each of the twelve factors and address how they to change to meet the needs of modern microservices apps.

In this webinar, we’ll cover:

The history of the 12 Factor App and the problems it solves

About the industry changes that have happened since the 12-factor app was introduced

What each of the current twelve factors are

How each of the 12 factors needs to be updated to fit microservice needs
