Polylith - A software architecture based on LEGO-like blocks

  • NOX Place 2 Brahegatan Stockholm, Stockholms län, 114 37 Sweden (map)

One step closer to development nirvana.


Polylith is a software architecture that applies functional thinking at the system scale. It helps us to build simple, maintainable, testable, and scalable backend systems.

Polylith gives us encapsulated building blocks, and a frictionless development experience. It separates our development environment from our deployed systems, which helps us avoid premature optimisation, and keeps our systems as simple as possible, for as long as possible.

Polylith makes it easy to convert existing monolith, microservice, or serverless systems into Polylith systems. This means it's not just for greenfield projects, but can start being used in existing production systems today.

The first version of the Polylith Tool is written in the functional language Clojure. The production code that we will show during this event is also in Clojure. However, the concepts in Polylith are applicable to any language or programming paradigm.


Software developers and architects


James Trunk will introduce the evening (~5 mins)

Joakim Tengstrand will give a brief overview of the Polylith architecture (~10 mins)

Furkan Bayraktar will give a code walkthrough of a production Polylith, which is deployed on Amazon Lambda (~45 mins)

Q&A session, so feel free to prepare some tricky questions in advance! (~30 mins)

The seminar will be held in Swedish and English.

Beer and pizza will be served.

As always you are welcome to bring a friend who's currently a freelancer, or who is thinking about becoming one. We like early birds even though the workshop is free of charge for everyone within the network (and for "tag along programmers" as well).
