ZooKeeper owns your availability. Worth watching. I thought it was amazing when she said that even 5 years ago, even at Google, most programmers were not thinking in terms of distributed computing. Instead, its been the boom in microservices that has driven the adoption of distributed computing. I wonder why microservices wasn’t more popular 10 years ago? Everything in software started off monolithic and has gotten smaller. I suppose that is because of the increasing ease of composition?
