Cultivating Production Excellence - Taming Complex Distributed Systems

Taming the complex distributed systems we're responsible for requires changing not just the tools and technical approaches we use; it also requires changing who is involved in production, how they collaborate, and how we measure success. 

 

In this talk, you'll learn about several practices core to production excellence: giving everyone a stake in production, collaborating to ensure observability, measuring with Service Level Objectives, and prioritizing improvements using risk analysis.

SESSION + Live Q&A Distributed Systems

Complex Event Flows in Distributed Systems

Event-driven architectures enable nicely decoupled microservices and are fundamental for decentralized data management. However, using peer-to-peer event chains to implement complex end-to-end logic crossing service boundaries can accidentally increase coupling. Extracting such business logic...

What Lies Between: The Challenge of Operationalising Microservices

The biggest challenge in operationalising microservices is managing the space between them. This is the land of distributed systems: uncertainty and non-determinism. I will present practical approaches that you can use to take microservices into production or increase the value provided by...
