Circuit Breakers for Node.js Microservices

Earlier this month I had the privilege of giving a talk at the 2018 Node+JS Interactive held in Vancouver, BC. The talk was about using the circuit breaker design pattern inside Node.js APIs in a microservices context.  Though I’ve been pretty actively speaking at Denver Code Club events for several years, this was my first time presenting at a proper conference; it went pretty well!

While putting the final touches on my slides, I noticed the metrics in my demo were not displaying how I expected. A rapid, last-minute rewrite of the code samples resulted in suboptimal code appearing in the video above. Lance Ball, creator of the Opossum circuit breaker library used in my demo, was in the audience and thankfully alerted me of my folly. The corrected slides have been posted 😄
