In response to a recent Twitter poll from Kent C. Dodds, Eric Clemmons shared concerns about how organizational boundaries are impacting where development happens. Kent tweeted…
Hey folks who have a decoupled client-server application (no server rendering, server is just an API server). Where is your client code and server code located? (#)
Together in one repo?
In separate repos?
Eric writes in his response on Medium:
Software is like Jello: poke it in one place, and another place jiggles.
In my experience, a repository should house all of the code necessary to make developing & shipping features relatively frictionless.
This isn’t an exact 1:1, but this was a big part of the reason why Segment transitioned back to a monorepo.
