The polls are closed, the votes have been counted, and we have a winner! For our first meetup in 2020 we’ll be discussing Cornelia Davis’ Cloud Native Patterns – Designing Change-tolerant Software.
Cloud platforms promise the holy grail: near-zero downtime, infinite scalability, short feedback cycles, fault-tolerance, and cost control. But how do you get there? By applying cloudnative designs, developers can build resilient, easily adaptable, web-scale distributed applications that handle massive user traffic and data loads. Learn these fundamental patterns and practices, and you’ll be ready to thrive in the dynamic, distributed, virtual world of the cloud.
With realistic examples and expert advice for working with apps, data, services, routing, and more, Cornelia Davis shows you how to design and build software that functions beautifully on modern cloud platforms. As you read, you will start to appreciate that cloud-native computing is more about the how and why rather than the where.
