Here’s @matt’s recent presentation at QCon which you can watch, with a split screen displaying the slides here.
This is a great summary of the talk too -
You can view Matt’s slides from the talk, which include lots of diagrams of Monzo’s microservices architecture, here -
it also includes this chart showing rapid growth of Monzo’s services
as well as a diagram, showing how much communication there is between Monzo’s backend services (each line is a message), when you make a transaction
And check out Monzo’s open source Typhon framework, “a transport layer for microservice [RPC] communication” here -
while Monzo’s Phosphor application is used for distributed tracing -
PS Monzo are currently hiring engineers
The presentation shows May launch date for the accounts
This presentation is from earlier this month though … This years QCon London was March 5-7. Wouldn’t they update the slides?
As much as I’d like you to be right, the point is the dates are there for illustrative purposes & Matt wasn’t confirming the launch date as part of his presentation
Hey, nice one @alexs! Also, didn’t know you had a public github, so thanks.
By the way, this thread is on HN’s front page right now.
