Smashing the Monolith



Leonard Garvey and Louis Simoneau discuss how to decompose a monolith, architectural and integration patterns to avoid creating a monolith, and useful patterns and tools along the way.


Leonard Garvey helps lead the effort to overhaul the back office of an ASX 100 company using modern technologies, microservices, and much willpower at REA Group. Louis Simoneau is currently the technical lead for the product and pricing platform at REA Group, where he oversees the implementation of a microservice architecture.
