Simon Brown chats to Voxxed about why he advocates applying microservice principles to monoliths – and why, in spite of what you might have read, monoliths are not always the worst case scenario (with a few tweaks to the architecture). We also discuss operational costs of maintaining microservices, and the developer costs that need to be taken into account. Filmed at Devoxx France 2016.
