Recursive Architecture

Recursive Architecture

Session Summary

Distributed systems are the new norm when building a platform (especially in the cloud) as they offer promises of scalability and resiliency.

In this talk we’ll discuss strategies for bringing platform level architecture into our services. Using a recursive approach to service design, it becomes easier to visualize and reason about our software.

Data access, concurrency, compartmentalization, resiliency, and scaling can all be reasoned about and applied using a micro-platform approach.
