Thomas Bøgh Fangel presents Lunar Way’s journey of breaking up their Rails monolith into a microservice architecture focusing on the benefits changing synchronous RPC to asynchronous events.


Thomas Bøgh Fangel is a back-end architect and developer at Lunar Way. His time is equally divided between thinking about how to improve and design the Lunar Way banking backend of the future and actually implementing it. Currently, most of this implementation is done in Go, but before joining Lunar Way he has implemented complex distributed systems using FP in Scala and the Akka actor framework.

Micro Services are a new paradigm for software architecture: small services in separated processes take the place of large applications.
