I just read this article from Proton - I wanted to quote dope snippets from it, but I'd basically be copying/pasting the whole article. I've already forwarded it to a few clients where we're discussing pros/cons of polyrepo vs monorepo. https://proton.me/blog/engineering-polyrepo-monorepo

Really nice discussion of the git migration.
The migration is great, but some of the comments in there re: problems, and unexpected wins was particularly useful. I've always done polyrepos, and they've always had this "thing" I never liked, but couldn't really elaborate. I think it's the silos (and overhead). I still typically keep my protobuf code in a separate repo, but otherwise, I'm monorepo'ing as well as possible, since modern tooling makes it sooooo much easier to manage

I'll soon give talks in PyCon KR and PyCon JP (both in October) about my experience on mono-repo migration of Backend.AI with Pants. I'll also share the decks (English version for PyCon JP) once available!

Thank you! That will be great. I look forward to hearing the talk. Good luck in October! Feel free to DM me details so we can promote it beforehand.
