Spy v Spy - Treachery in the Dev/Ops Trenches

A session at Velocity Europe 2012

Wednesday 3rd October, 2012

4:55pm to 5:35pm (GMT)

Dr Martin Anderson has a degree in molecular biology and loves nothing more than to hear himself think out loud. Abe’s a school leaver who’s spent fifteen years in the trenches making sure his phone doesn’t ring at night. In Betfair’s quest to build bigger, faster and better web-based products, Abe and Martin have come to love and nurture each other’s blind spots, all while just barely keeping from killing each other.

Come along as they dissect each other’s bad decisions: from picking an inconsistent NoSQL data store for a use case that requires consistency (Dr Anderson) to trying to instrument a billion clustered transactions per second with an online code debugger (Abe), this dynamic relationship will make you laugh and cringe all at the same time.
