Building Monoliths That Could Scale (Easily) To Microservices (Only If They Need To) by David Gomez G.

Today, many projects and applications are started with the goal of deploying them in the cloud in order to support a large requests load and to be prepared to scale easily. When we look at large projects and get carried away by fads (or the hype), it's easy to fall into the temptation to start designing your entire application with a microservices architecture... Because, you know, that's what everyone's doing, right? But... Are microservices an end in themselves, or a means to an end?

In this talk, we'll take a different approach: we'll go back to basics, look at the journey rather than the destination, and see how following DDD, CQRS, and event-sourcing practices will allow us to design and evolve our application starting with the simplicity of a monolith, but giving it the ability to scale to microservices when (and most importantly, only when) we need it.
