At work, I was recently introduced to the idea of Monorepos. While developer who have been writing code for microservices tend to think of microservice architecture as a number of x codebases somehow interacting with each other, there is another school of thoughts that is pushing the idea of organising code in a single repository. Do not fret, that does not mean that we want to create a monolithic application, tightly coupled, aka a giant and far from being modular piece of software.

- Only build the services or cmds that are modified in a pushed commit;
- Build all services and/or cmds that are affected by changes in common codes (i.e.
