This track is compelling. As track host I focused on inviting speakers with significant experience in building and deploying real working systems that exhibit high availability, with the goal of maximizing the transfer of ideas, approaches, tools, and techniques from the speakers to the attendees.
- The track kicks off with Joe Armstrong, the father of Erlang, talking about building highly-available systems with Erlang.
- Next up, Mark McGranaghan of Heroku will present approaches they use at Heroku to ensure high availability.
- After lunch, John Allspaw of Etsy will talk about fault tolerance, anomaly detection, and anticipation patterns. John is well known for his excellent books on capacity planning and web operations. John is also giving the Friday morning keynote, “Resilient Response In Complex Systems”.
- Following John will be Jodi Moran, CTO at Plumbee, who will tell us about what it takes to build systems capable of going from zero to ten million users in 4 weeks.
- We’ll wrap up the track with Martin Thompson, a specialist in high-speed, highly-available and low-latency systems who helped build the LMAX Disruptor, who will talk about event-sourced architectures and what we’ve forgotten about high availability.
It’s gonna be great, no doubt, and I’m really looking forward to it. Hope to see you there!
I’ll also be giving a talk at the conference about distributed systems and Riak Core.
