Serious question: How do the sizes of today's microservice code bases compares to the sizes of historical monoliths?
Are we building monolith-sized microservices without realizing it?
Remember that many of today's languages are far more compact and expressive than the ones in common use in the 90s and earlier.
@jcholder The size of codebases doesn't really bother me. It is the sprawl of tens of repositories that gets me.
