Monolith-ifying perfectly good microservices

Many conference talks have been created from engineers splitting services out of dusty old monolith apps. However, @Intercominc did the exact opposite - they moved multiple services back into their monolith and got huge productivity and reliability wins, allowing them to ship better features to their customers.

Senior Principal Systems Engineer Brian Scanlan covers the reasons why these services existed in the first place, why they felt the need to move them into their monolith, whether the moves back into the monolith were successful and what they learned along the way, including which parts of Ruby on Rails helped or hindered them!
