Raw recording of Adrian Cockcroft talking about microservices

I attended a talk by Adrian Cockcroft hosted by Massachusetts Microservices Meetup in March. It was supposed to be recorded by Pivotal (they hosted the event) but that didn't work out.

I had one of my simple dictaphones with me and got permission to record the talk from Adrian and Ajit (meetup organizer). I was not expecting release this recording. Attached is the raw audio from that event, it is not high quality but you shouldn't have any difficulty understanding Adrian.

Adrian's slides are available here.
