Getting Started: Modular Monoliths in .NET

Start your Modular Monoliths journey

A monolith refers to a software application that is deployed as a single physical deployment. Many monolithic applications lack sufficient structure and end up becoming Big Balls of Mud. By contrast, a modular monolith breaks up the application into logical modules which are largely independent from one another. This provides many of the benefits of more distributed approaches like microservices without the overhead of deploying and managing a distributed application. In this course, you’ll learn how to get started building a modular monolith application using a real world sample, the RiverBooks ecommerce site.
