It turns out that we can’t have it all when we are dealing with the kind of distributed systems required by today’s web-scale applications. We cannot simultaneously guarantee Consistency, Availability and tolerance to Partitioning. We can fulfill any two but we are stuck with a weaker version of whatever is left.
So what happens then when we choose to relax the requirement of data consistency? And how are we going to write reliable code in these situations?
In this talk, Cristiano Solarino will look at an approach to cope with this, called Convergent Replicated Data Types, using Riak as the reference example of an eventually consistent database. Cris will explain why he thinks CRDTs are really cool and will walk through a couple of simple examples in Node.
