Oh… these are amazing! I had only read the paper, didn’t know about these videos. I think any information we can get about TAO is a good one. Also, Facebook’s Dragon query engine.

Watched the first one, it isn’t very useful. Maybe reading the paper would be more useful.

Second talk was more detailed and gave more info. However they architecture is not super useful for other environments
