Kavya Joshi explores the beautifully simple happens-before principle. She delves into how happens-before is tracked in a distributed database like Riak, and how it’s implicitly maintained by the concurrency primitives provided in languages like Go. She touches upon other sophisticated uses of happens-before like consensus protocols and data race detection.


Kavya Joshi works as a Software Engineer at Samsara, a start-up in San Francisco. She particularly enjoys architecting and building highly concurrent, highly scalable systems.

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.
