Eventual Consistency – Don’t Be Afraid!
Distributed data-intensive systems are increasingly designed to be only eventually consistent. Persistent data is no longer processed with serialized and transactional access, exposing applications to a range of potential consistency and concurrency anomalies that need to be handled by the application itself. Controlling concurrent data access in monolithic systems is already challenging, but the problem is exacerbated in distributed systems. To make it worse, only little systematic engineering guidance is provided by the software architecture community regarding this issue.
Susanne shares her experiences from different case studies with industry clients, and novel open access design guidelines developed using action research. In this talk you will learn settled and novel approaches to tackle consistency- and concurrency related design challenges.

The Commoditization of the Software Stack: How Application-first Cloud Services are Changing the Game
Monday Mar 27 / 11:50AM BST
The runtime boundaries between applications and the cloud are shifting from virtual machines to containers and functions. The integration boundaries are moving away from pure data access to one where the mechanical parts of the application are running within the cloud.

What is Derived Data? (And do You Already Have Any?)
Monday Mar 27 / 05:25PM BST
There is a growing trend of databases specializing in derived data ingestion and serving. They complement more traditional “primary data” (or “source of truth”) systems.

Connecting the Dots: API Design in a Distributed World
Monday Mar 27 / 04:10PM BST
As we’ve gone from building monoliths to building microservices, the number of APIs we’ve got to manage has gone from just the database and front end, to at least one per service.
