Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Distributed Architectures * But Were Afraid to Ask
Distributed application architectures are complex. To a large extent, the past forty years of computer science has been dedicated to avoiding the problem, rather than addressing it head-on. The age of “internet of things” and “microservices”, however, has forced us into a world where we must not only acknowledge distributed architectures, but must embrace them. This session is aimed at equipping you with the knowledge necessary to understand and thrive in a truly distributed architecture. We’ll dive deep into the theory that drives modern distributed systems, and come out the other side prepared to build our own.
