During this one-day seminar, you will learn about foundational components of distributed systems. You’ll learn modeling techniques, modern frameworks and technologies, metrics and measurement, and some tips and tricks to make getting started or continuing your work easy.
Instructor: PalominoDB’s Jay Edwards
Jay Edwards is the CTO at PalominoDB. As the first database administrator at Twitter, he experienced a gamut of growth ranging from a handful of servers to thousands. While the lead database engineer for President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign, Jay did a lot of things that are still covered by an NDA; we can say that he managed a large number of disparate data sources and provided a high degree of technically focused management.
