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.
