Breaking down problems

Breaking down problems

When starting with microservice architectures a common question people ask is "how big should a service be?” While this is sometimes useful when considering the complexity of a system, it doesn’t capture the variety of use cases or problems systems may be solving — a service that selects emoji for push notifications will probably be simpler than one of the core services in a payment processor?

In this talk we’ll look at how Monzo approach problem solving, taking business ideas and breaking them down into small, simple, services which together build a system that is more than the sum of its parts.
