Eric Brewer explores continuous evolution, which is the ability to add features easily to a running service and is key to high velocity in development, focusing on immutability to decouple specification from instantiation. Similarly, declarative techniques enable automation, and specialization of APIs enables better support for classes of tasks, including those that are stateless.


Eric Brewer joined Google in May 2011 and leads the company’s compute infrastructure design. He focuses on all aspects of Internet­ based systems including cloud computing, scalability, containers, and storage. As a researcher, Dr. Brewer has led projects on scalable servers, network infrastructure, IoT, and the CAP Theorem.

Software is changing the world. QCon empowers software development by facilitating the spread of knowledge and innovation in the developer community. A practitioner-driven conference, QCon is designed for technical team leads, architects, engineering directors, and project managers who influence innovation in their teams.
