Agile Shower Thoughts

There's this ever growing need for speed mentality within software development. Everything needs to happen faster, but be aware of the risks. I jotted down some of my shower-thoughts to help you achieve speed.



Can't we all just agree?

The most often-cited papers on the theory of highly-available distributed systems. Lets explore and talk about distributed consensus. The core algorithms behind these papers, Paxos and Raft.
