Simple tasks like running a program or storing and retrieving data become much more complicated when you do them on collections of computers, rather than single machines. Distributed systems have become a key architectural construct, but they affect everything a program would normally do. Using a series of examples taken from a fictional coffee shop operation, this video course with Tim Berglund helps you explore five key areas of distributed systems, including storage, computation, timing, communication, and consensus. You’ll also learn about some distributed programming paradigms. If you’re an experienced developer looking to sharpen your architectural skills—particularly with regard to big data—this is one course you shouldn’t miss. – Dive into the five main problems areas in distributed systems—storage, computation, messaging, timing, and consensus – Understand key challenges that emerge in each of these areas as you move from single-processor to a distributed architecture – Discover one or more common open-source products that address each problem area Tim Berglund is a full-stack generalist and passionate teacher who loves coding, presenting, and working with people. He’s the founder and principal software developer at August Technology Group, a technology consulting firm focused on the JVM. Tim is an international speaker and co-presenter of the bestselling McCullough and Berglund on Mastering Git (O’Reilly).
