Embracing Concurrency at Scale

A session at Surge 2010

Thursday 30th September, 2010

11:00am to 12:00pm (EST)

We're at Surge because we agree that scalability matters. However, words like "scaling" get thrown around sometimes without discussing the fundamental problems that come along with distributed systems. Some of these problems (such as the CAP theorem) are often referred to without understanding the context that makes them important.

Justin will focus on methods for designing and building robust fundamentally-concurrent distributed systems. These approaches have been learned through building customer-facing web applications, data storage and processing systems, and server management tools. We will look at practices that are "common knowledge" but too often forgotten, at old lessons that the software industry at large has somehow missed, and at some general "good practices" and rules that must be thrown away when moving into a distributed and concurrent world.
