Parcify, the evolution from our PHP monolith to event-driven webservices
Talk by Tim Haselaars (45 minutes)

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.
