I’ve been leading a project around building a microservice/moving products from a monolith to microservice for the last few months. As it comes to an end I’ve gotten to retrospect on it. Between leading a complex project/engineers to building tooling for robust systems and just all the learnings from this type of monolith-to-microservice migration, it’s been such an incredible experience and I’m looking forward to sharing my insights with you all. My favorite parts have been seeing people use the tools my team and I built and therefore be able to move faster and more robustly. That is why we invest in these things 🤓. Happy Sunday! cily P.S Since it’s national day of women and girls in science ✨ I just wanted to publicly say how inspired I am by the community here- too many inspiring women in science to fit in a caption, but the #womeninscience should help you get started 😊.
