SRE Your gRPC—Building Reliable Distributed Systems (Workshop)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Distributed systems have sharp edges, and we have a wealth of experience in cutting ourselves on them.

In this workshop, participants will learn how to specify and use gRPC-based services (including an introduction to protocol buffers). Particular emphasis will be placed on engineering for reliability in the face of inevitable failures and errors. This will include identifying and implementing appropriate strategies for different requirements and circumstances, as well as enabling effective debugging through strong instrumentation.

All topics covered will include hands-on coding exercises.

Participants need to have a working knowledge of C++, Go, Java, or Python, and must bring a laptop running the Chrome browser (and a suitable charger).
