vancouver tech podcast

Special guest Nathan Ladd, co-creator of the Eventide Project joins host Drew Ogryzek for a discussion around monolithic software architecture versus microservices, what that means, and what the informed CEO should know when a team is considering tackling this type of software design shift.

What is a monolith? What does microservices architecture bring to the table? What should we consider when determining what makes sense for the software that drives our business?

“The database layer; how you arrange your bits on disk, is one of the biggest factors in terms of the plyability of a monolithic codebase to become services, if not the biggest,” said Ladd. “I happen to think it is the biggest.”

Samantha Ming from the Events Podcast gives a review of the Unbounce Call to Action Conference that happened last week, and fills us in on the upcoming events of the week.
