Beth Skurrie


Problem solver, software developer, Pact evangelist

Beth is a consultant at DiUS, specialising in Ruby development. Beth became a developer not because she particularly likes computers, but because she loves to solve problems and make things that are useful.

Most recently, Beth has been immersed in the microservices world. Her experience has created a firm belief that we should throw away traditional integration tests and use consumer driven contracts instead. She’s been walking the talk through a national brown bag tour and as a speaker at the inaugural YOW! West Conference.

Beth’s favorite things to do at work are talking about Pacts and deleting code.

The Odyssey – From Monoliths to Microservices at


Join us to hear about our adventures in a microservice world at Learn about the problems that launched our journey, the solutions to our problems, and the solutions to our solutions. We’ll share lessons that we have learned, things that have gone well and less well, where we want to go next, and some of the approaches and tools that we’ve adopted to make the approach sustainable.
