How Events Are Reshaping Modern Systems

Event-driven architecture and design have been getting a lot of attention in recent years. It’s an old concept that has been around for decades, so why this sudden peak of interest? In this talk, we will explore the nature of events, what it means to be event-driven, and how we can unleash the...

Attack Trees, Security Modeling for Agile Teams

Agile software development and security often don’t feel like good bedfellows. Many traditional security methodologies for analysing risk and threats are based on old military or government based software development methodologies which favour traditional, slow moving, low change...

Observable JS Apps

Observability isn't just for backends. Client-side javascript applications are the original distributed systems software: real-time, heavily cached, single-paged, asynchronous, multi-domain, with polyglot persistence layers and cascading dependencies and always running massive amounts of JS. So...

At the moment, I’m building the backend services for a real-time multiplayer game on mobile, including an inhouse networking stack that will be deployed globally and supports both TCP and reliable UDP. We’re still doing a lot of tuning, and would put an early alpha build in front of users for external validation on our networking...

Observable JS Apps

Tell me a bit about managing the product team at Honeycomb.

We are a super small startup, we're scaling up quickly. The interesting thing that my team is tasked with is creating new ways to visualize and understand complex distributed systems. The tool is in a space between log aggregator, metrics, tracing — the intersection of all those kinds of tools. The most interesting thing that we do...
