Patterns of Distributed Systems
AUGUST 4, 2020
Over the last few months, my colleague Unmesh Joshi has been running workshops to teach developers about distributed systems design. In this work he's been delving into many open-source distributed systems and identifying patterns. As he writes them up, he's publishing the patterns on my site. Today he's publishing an initial narrative article that ties the first batch of patterns together, and two of these patterns: Heartbeat and Generation Clock.
