Modular Architecture - Refactoring the Monolith

A session at ArchConf

Tuesday 5th April, 2016

10:30am to 12:00pm (PST)

Microservices are all the rage. But this isn’t a session on microservices. It’s a session on modularity. At the end of the day, microservices are just one way to the increase modularity of our software system. But there are others.

In this session we’ll refactor a monolith using patterns of modular architecture. In the end, you’ll see how the underlying set of principles used to modularize the monolith are virtually identical to the benefits of a microservice architecture, albeit manifest in a different way. Once modularized, you’ll also be amazed at how much architectural agility we have in our ability to now shift between different approaches to modularity, including microservices.
