OPEN TALK: Case Study: Adapting A Monolithic Application to Support Hyper Growth

Main Stage
Join on Hopin

Alexander Danilenko
Toptal, Chief Software Architect

Alexander started as a senior developer at NetCracker Technology Corp. before moving to a technical manager position, leading teams of up to 10 developers. He then switched his focus to start-ups, and, as the technical co-founder, implemented several projects from scratch. For a year he was employed as CTO at, where he was involved in both business processes and development, while building the development team and the product from the ground up. At Toptal, Alexander combines his experience in both corporate and start-up environments to lead internal technological development. Alexander has a MS in Applied Mathematics and Physics from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and does further research in Computer-Human Interaction while completing a PhD at the Institute of Control Sciences of RAS.

This talk will focus on the architecture implications of a fast growing fully-remote organization and the use of a monolithic (versus micro services) application to facilitate scalability, onboarding, and manageability. This is a real-world case study.
