Talk 2: Breaking a Monolithic Monolith

Dealing with high volume transactions and heavy load data transactions can be a very challenging upkeep. Add the factors of Reactive programming, Socket connections ,High Availability, Scalability and data distribution, resiliency  , it can make the process even complex. We look at the journey of our transition from Monolothic application to microservices architecture and how Devops culture led the path to our quick transition with limited resources. The topic also points to some challenges that we incurred in process and how we overcome those challenges with our baked solutions.
