Well, seems like people love to declare something dead. So far the only thing I truly consider dead is the 3.5' floppy disk.

But there are some things that can be said about your description:

  • monoliths are easier to design/test/deploy: not by a longshot. Design isn’t easy because you have to consider all things beforehand otherwise your monolith becomes a patchwork that’s legacy before it hits production. Internal modularity doesn’t provide any sort of guarantees of integrity unless you have a good grasp of all modules and the larger the application, the less chance of that. Testing isn’t easy because … well … you have to test it all (actually, it can be easy, just big in size)
