Axel Fontaine looks at what Immutable Infrastructure is and how it affects scaling, logging, sessions, configuration, service discovery and more.
Mathieu Bastian explores the mechanics of unit, integration, data and performance testing for large, complex data workflows, along with the tools for Hadoop, Pig and Spark.
Jon Moore talks about distributed monotonic clocks (DMC) whose timestamps can reflect causality but which have a component that stays close to wall clock time.
Robert Metzger provides an overview of the Apache Flink internals and its streaming-first philosophy, as well as the programming APIs.
Helena Edelson addresses new architectures emerging for large scale streaming analytics based on Spark, Mesos, Akka, Cassandra and Kafka (SMACK) or Apache Flink or GearPump.
The authors present how lineage-driven fault injection evolved from a theoretical model into an automated failure testing system that leverages Netflix’s fault injection and tracing infrastructures.
Josh Evans discusses architectural patterns used by Netflix to enable seamless, multi-region traffic management, reliable, fast data propagation, and efficient service infrastructure.
Stephane Maldini and Rossen Stoyanchev discuss building reactive web applications, the choice of runtimes, using reactive streams for network I/O and the reactive programming model.
Joe Stein makes an introduction for developers about why and how to use Apache Kafka. Apache Kafka is a publish-subscribe messaging system rethought of as a distributed commit log.
Yongsheng Wu talks about how to build highly-resilient systems at scale. Wu presents also failure cases that prompted engineers at Pinterest to build such systems, and how they test these systems.
Kyle Anderson discusses details on how to tie Mesos, Docker, SmartStack, Haproxy, Git, and Sensu all together into a coherent system that developers can use to ship their code in a self-serve way.
Gary Russell discusses how Spring Integration and Spring AMQP are used as two of the underlying technologies in Spring XD.
