Behold The Monolith: Understanding The Microkernel Architecture

Duration: 50 mins
Mark Richards

The current trend in the industry is to break apart monolithic applications into smaller pieces called microservices. This trend towards microservices sometimes implies that monolithic architectures are bad and should be avoided. In this session Mark Richards shows that that monolithic architectures are still alive and well by taking a deep dive into the microkernel architecture (otherwise known as the plug-in architecture). He also shows how the microkernel architecture differs from microservices (both the good and the bad).
