MTC2018 - Mercari API: from Monolithic to Microservices

Speaker: Tonghui Li

Mercari has evolved tremendously in the last 5 years, and so is our code base. As of 2018, the backend API is a monolithic repository of half-million lines of code, serving all the functions of the Mercari web and mobile applications. It is becoming a bottle neck of our growth, in terms of both the system and the organization. This talk will focus on how we migrate the monolithic backend API to a microservice architecture, the methodology we choose and the lessons we learned.
