Last time we shared with you how Kubernetes and Kafka technologies help us to scale our product.

For the 6th edition of Tech Talks @ TransferWise Singapore, we've prepared talks to zoom in into some of our scaling challenges and share with you our learnings.

6.30pm: Food and networking 🍕🥪
6:45pm: Introduction to TransferWise
7:00pm: Andras Forgacs presents "Architecture Evolution - Our journey (TransferWise KYC/Verification)"

Software architecture does not remain static and stable throughout the lifetime of a product but rather continuously evolves. Andras, who is leading verification engineering, will present a journey on how the architecture of customer verification module evolved in TransferWise over the years, what challenges and requirements influenced our system, and what the future holds for us in this domain.

7:40pm: Nasir Jamal presents "SOA - Patterns & Anti-patterns"

Most applications start as single monolithic systems. As they attract more customers and onboard new features, they tend to increase in complexity and in demand for engineering manpower. Scalability, delivery speed, maintainability become weighty and urgent requirements for building a successful product. What is the right time to move application from monolith to System Oriented Architecture? What are the pitfalls, benefits and drawbacks behind such move?
Nasir is helping to scale TansferWise today as lead of regional Currencies team, yet for the past 4 years he was leading multiple engineering teams in Deliveroo and heavily contributed to the move of underlying architecture from monolith to SOA. In this session Nasir is going to share learnings from his professional experience and help answering any questions you might have on this topic.

8:20pm: Even more food and networking!
9:00pm: Doors close
