Tells the story how we moved the Parcify platform from a PHP monolith to PHP event-driven web services. Shares our development insights and experiences that came with a rapidly evolving and changing product. How we tried to keep the PHP code stable and scalable while we went from idea to prototype to MVP to platform with challenges like a changing organization, changing product features, changing technology and changing architecture.

Speaker: Tim Haselaars was the “Head of Technology” since the birth of the Antwerp start-up Parcify ( (with investments by Bpost). He has a track record mostly as a Technical Product Manager / Scrum master with a passion for music, web technology and micro services.

It was great to see the evolution of a startup from a monolithic application to an ecosystem of web-services, alongside the challenges and their solutions, tips, and more. There was also an almost perfect mix of technical and non-technical content.

If you're interested in giving this talk at a conference, try to find a way of bringing the talk length down to about 45-50 minutes. Otherwise the length was fine, e.g. in our meetup I don't think anyone cared so much about the length, because it was educational and entertaining.
