Escape the Monolith

We’ve all been there — we’d like to be able use the modern DevOps approach and deploy our own code. But our code is intertwined with everyone else’s code in a giant monolith. It may even be separated into a directory, but any change we make in our code often requires a change in someone else’s code. We’re stuck.

What would it be like if there were an incremental way to get my own team’s code out of the monolith? Something that I could do without asking for funding, without slowing down development, and without requiring that other teams help?

This series explores just such an approach. Free your code, even if other teams aren’t yet ready to free theirs.
