Objective

The key objective is to get the attendee a more nuanced appreciation of the constraints placed while designing distributed/fault tolerant systems. At the end of this talk, the attendee should be conversant with some of the key theorms, ideas and common solutions to distributed problems.

Description

We will be presenting a summary of some of the key theorms and papers in distributed computing and highlight their impact on system design. We will also go through some of the mitigation methods/workarounds/clever hacks on the constraints imposed by these research topics.

Requirements

Patience

Speaker bio

I have been a passionate software developer for the last 20+ years. Over that time, I have worked on a wide variety of platforms and systems, from ZX-Spectrum to large mainframes that run COBOL to embedded systems to large distributed systems. OVer the last 10 years, I have developed an interest in machine learning and designing distributed systems. I have presented papers on various events and groups. I think I am more suitable just because I am passionate about this subject.
