The topic of discussion for this Foundations Friday Forum will be architecture styles. We'll be discussing monolithic as well as distributed architectures, including layered, modular monolith, microkernel, pipeline, service-based, microservices, event-driven, and space-based architecture. Come prepared with your questions about when these architecture styles should be used, what the pros and cons are of each of these, and any other questions about these various architectures.
