Architectural patterns of resilient distributed systems

Modern systems can fail in spectacular ways. Failure isn’t a question of if, but when. Resilient systems can endure and gracefully recover from failures, but ensuring your system has these properties requires thought and some deliberate architectural decisions. Join me in this talk as I attempt to find answers in literature and industry to build…

Understanding performance output can feel like reading tea leaves. It makes sense to a few people, but many of us are left in the dark; overwhelmed and frustrated by the data. On top of that there are a ton of performance tools to choose from; StackProf, RubyProf, AllocationTracer. Where do you even start? While working on speeding up integration…

The Pixel Factory
The average phone has a few megapixels, powered by its GPU. For the most part it sits there shuffling bits around to follow your finger. But properly unleashed, these tiny supercomputers can run obscene amounts of code in a blink, even from within the restricted sandbox of a web browser. Each pixel is a virtual machine on its own, with math inside.…
