Hi Mark, thanks for your comment. I think a key factor is the speed of instantiation of containers, which make it completely reasonable to rebuild and redeploy rather than patch (and as a consequence we get an artifact that can... Read More.

Four days focused on systems engineering, operations, and performance.

The systems you're building are complex and distributed, made up of numerous applications and services. They're hard to build and harder to manage with no one right way to build to meet your customer's needs. Creating them is a collaborative effort full of interdependencies between teams and technologies. With so many moving pieces, it's nearly impossible to predict the potential impact one part will have on other parts of the system under various conditions—until one fails, that is.

Join us at the O’Reilly Velocity Conference as we step back for a full-stack, holistic view of our applications and services and explore how to improve end-to-end performance. Together, we'll learn from failure—which we see as inevitable given the complexity of our systems—and see how resilience engineering can help you and your team build the fastest and most durable systems possible.

You'll find your peers at Velocity: systems engineers, operations and site reliability engineers, systems architects, application developers, and performance engineers—a community of talented and diverse people who are doing amazing things in engineering, performance, and DevOps. If you'd like to learn from some of the most successful and innovative minds in the field that will help you and your team build the best possible products and systems, make plans to join us at Velocity, 17-20 October at the Hilton London Metropole.

Themes we'll cover
