Building a Banking Infrastructure with Microservices: QCon London Q&A

In a few years, the number of microservices has grown from 100 to 1600 at Monzo, and it continues to grow. Microservices are split when responsibilities grow, or merged when services are tightly coupled. Engineers can generate, deploy, scale and monitor their own services using code generation.
