Modern Banking in 1500 Microservices

Monzo runs over 1,500 microservices in production and that number continues to grow. Each has a single responsibility and well defined interfaces. It takes many, many distinct pieces of functionality to run a modern banking backend.  

This talk will explain how we build, operate, observe and maintain our banking infrastructure. We’ll talk about how we compose microservices to add new functionality.
