Microservices & Scaling of Rational Interactions



Mark Burgess talks about the scaling of microservices in computer and human interaction. As services are scaled across inputs and outputs, at every stage, there are challenges to rethink calibrations of true and false. This has important implications for monitoring and programmatic reasoning in general. Everything that was once believed about software performance may need rethinking.


Mark Burgess is a theoretician and practitioner in the area of information systems, whose work has focused largely on distributed information infrastructure. He is known particularly for his work on Configuration Management and Promise Theory. He was the principal Founder of CFEngine. He has published a follow up article to keynote.
