Building Ultra-Resilient Systems in Go
November 13 2024 - 10:30 (25 min )

In the past 6 months, my team encountered two critical incidents stemming from the same root cause - complete power loss in one of our primary data centers. The incidents occurred 5 months apart, and although the root cause was the same, our services responded very differently the second time around. Drawing from lessons learnt from this, this talk dives deep into the strategies and techniques implemented to build ultra-resilient systems in Go.

LEVEL: Introductory and Overview
