"The review determined that despite spending $540 million for checked baggage screening equipment and another $11 million for training since a previous review in 2009, the TSA failed to make any noticeable improvements in that time."
 
In one test an undercover agent was stopped after setting off an alarm at a magnetometer, but TSA screeners failed to detect a fake explosive device that was taped to his back during a follow-on pat down.
An internal investigation of the Transportation Security Administration revealed security failures at dozens of the nation's busiest airports.

I endorse this: build a monolith first, then decompose into microservices.

Another argument that +Martin Fowler doesn't make, but I would, is a kind of reverse Conway's Law: the architecture of the software will be reflected in the communication structures of the team.  When starting a project you don't want to let people or groups go off and work in isolation.  

In some sense the peeling off of microservices is a natural maturing of a project, where you think about new aspects of the project in relation to how they are different than how the project is currently.  But when starting a project there isn't the shared understanding of the existing product, and you need to actively build that shared understanding.
Going directly to a microservices architecture is risky, so consider building a monolithic system first. Split to microservices when, and if, you need it.

I used to utilize Flask or Sinatra for my smaller projects and Django or Rails when I needed something "full stack," but now I just use Pyramid.
 
Pyramid is a lightweight Python web framework aimed at taking small web apps into big web apps. This site provides an easy entry point into Pyramid.

A grain-free diet isn't necessary for most people and may make you gain weight. But science isn't slowing the trend.
