Build the modular monolith first
Even talking about building a monolith today, is a bit taboo. It is all about microservices at the moment, and has been for a few years. But they aren’t a silver bullet. Sure, a bunch of the big players use them. But microservices also come with a lot of extra complexity that can make life a lot harder than it has to be. So maybe…just maybe…you should consider building a modular monolith to start of with, and then transition it to a services based architecture when you actually need it.

She's interested in the capability of robots and other agents to develop broadly intelligent behavior through learning and interaction at scale.
