Hi John! Welcome to Codetown. I enjoed browsing your blog. Kudos, because each entry has useful info we can all learn from. I particularly liked your Grails entries. We have groups you'll enjoy joining, including ones on Grails, Databases, and just look around. I hope you begin posting soon. Feel free to cut and paste content from your blog in say, the Grails group. We have a lot of Idea aficionados here, as well. I also like your photo site. Being a dog lover without a dog, I enjoy appreciating stuff like that a lot! I had trouble choosing my favorite photo, but this one is tops in my book. You'll also want to join the SunJUG, I'm sure. Welcome, and hope you invite your friends, colleagues and have a good time here in Codetown! All the best, Mike

Key takeaways included: engineers should design schema first for all APIs and events, as this allows the automated code generation of boilerplate code; and investment should be made in automation, such as deployment and dependency management.

Why Segment Returned to a Monolith From Microservices

Alexandra Noonan, from Segment, describes how they moved their original monolithic architecture to microservices and then found problems with that approach which required them to rethink and move back to a (different) monolithic architecture with far more appreciable benefits.
