MB will present a new twist on his reactive summit talk about the scaling of microservices in computer and human interaction. As we scale services by across inputs and outputs, at every stage, we are challenged to rethink our calibrations of true and false. This has important implications for monitoring and programmatic reasoning in general. Everything we once believed about software performance may need rethinking.
