Hello,

My questions are:
1) Why people are talking they are doing microservices when what are they actually doing is a monolith with several services or REST calls? Where is the misunderstanding? :)
2) Which are the most commonly used software architecture styles and patterns?
3) Are there any steps to follow when starting a new project and you have to design the architecture for it?

Thanks in advance!

Glad you like them, but I am too shy even for a voice recording. Sorry :(
