  • Client & Product

    Blue Manor Academy is an interactive educational web platform for homeschooling preschoolers, elementary, and middle school students. It operates on a subscription-based model.

    Our client, Britton, is the founder and the director of BMA. As a father of multiple children, he sought a comprehensive solution to enhance their preschool education and boost their learning motivation. Additionally, Britton aimed to address the issue of students lacking the drive to engage in their studies. Often, parents cannot afford the best educational institutions, and teachers may lack motivation due to inadequate compensation.

    In light of these challenges, Britton began creating BMA. This platform aims to assist parents in managing their children's education effectively while fostering a higher level of self-motivation among students through an interactive learning format.

  • Request

    Briton expressed dissatisfaction with the code quality and performance of the web platform following their engagement with a previous vendor.

    The code was filled with temporary solutions that didn't work well, slowed down the page speed several times, and, most importantly, made it impossible to scale the product.

    Because of this, they reached out to LaSoft. Our collaboration began with a focus on enhancing the technical aspects: conducting a code review, performing refactoring, and updating data libraries. We undertook the migration from a monolithic application to microservices and this transformation rendered the platform well-equipped for future expansion.


    The client expressed contentment with the caliber and professionalism of our work, leading them to choose LaSoft as the primary vendor for the ongoing development of the educational platform.

    • Migration From Monolith to Microservices

      Effectively designed and implemented microservices offer solutions to common issues encountered in monolithic architecture. These include challenges related to system scalability, sluggish delivery processes, and the complexities of identifying and verifying defects. In a monolithic structure, the codebase is usually tightly coupled and interconnected, making it difficult to troubleshoot, modify, or scale individual components.

      The entire application is deployed as a single unit, which can make it difficult to roll out fixes, minor adjustments, or new features without affecting the entire system. Testing, debugging, and conducting maintenance on the system can be even more challenging, as changes made to one part of the system can potentially impact other parts of the application.

      System scalability faces several challenges if a monolithic architecture is used because it contains all functionalities within a single code base. The entire application must be scaled as requirements change. Microservices are an architectural approach to building and deploying software applications that involves breaking down an application into smaller, independent services that can be developed, deployed, and maintained separately. Microservices applications are more resilient thanks to independent deployment and loose coupling if compared to tight coupling in monolith applications.
