Verónica López - Designing for Failure: Fault Tolerance in Distributed Systems

Designing for Failure: Fault Tolerance in Distributed Systems

In this talk we will explore how fault-tolerance looks like in real world systems, and why it’s better to design strategies with failure in mind, rather than striving for a system that never crashes. We will discuss the current tooling, and what can Go borrow from other ecosystems to achieve this goal.
