We're all set to get together again and chat all things AWS.
This time we will have Nate Smith from Shopify share his experience and thoughts on designing unbreakable systems on AWS.
You've turned off the last server in the rack. Your software is running blissfully on a dozen - maybe hundreds - of EC2 instances. Everything's humming along and then BOOM. The site is down.
In a mad scramble, you get everything up and running after figuring out the issue: a missed email that the database instance was 'scheduled for retirement'. You wish you had retired yesterday.
Amazon has yet to ship fault-tolerance icing to go along with it's magic scaling sprinkles, that part is still up to you. Fortunately, academics have been figuring out how to build resilient distributed systems for decades.
Come learn how to use fancy Computer Science like the CAP theorem to think about and design unbreakable systems running on AWS.
Nate works on the API team at Shopify in Toronto. You can find him infrequently blogging on http://theinternate.com or making bad jokes on Twitter @nwjsmith.
