The random thoughts of a software developer

DDD South West - A Monolith of Microservices - 02 May 2019

First slide from the talk, Stonehenge representing a monolith

Thank you to everyone who attended my talk A Monolith of Microservices at DDD South West.

I wanted to dispell the myth that a Monolith does not necessarily mean that the code has to become a tangled mess and that a microservice architecture does not necessarily mean that you are working in a loosely-coupled haven. By applying microservice thinking to the Monolith, i.e. creating small cohesive areas of code that interact via messages, we can create a Monolith of Microservices that has many of the benefits of both models.

As promised, my slides from the talk.
