I am very happy with my monolith. I've been watching the K8s craze with amusement.

I will be splitting off pieces of my monolith soon, but docker-compose is a very reasonable compromise for running stuff, and the pieces I'm splitting off are for aggregation and background computation, so not really micro-services at all.
