Once upon a time, huge dinosaurs roamed the earth. If you looked carefully, though, you could see a whole other world teeming about their feet -- small, agile mammals. As it turned out, those small mammals survived events that wiped out their huge neighbors.
We can learn a lot from (pre)history. As it turns out, the day of the monolithic application is rapidly passing. The future lies in large numbers of small, interconnected applications. In this talk, we'll look at why this strategy works, how to decompose large applications into small, independent ones, and how to make sure they all work together as effectively as possible.
