White Water Rafting

Danielle Lancashire at Go Systems Conf SF 2020

Consensus is a fairly tricky, but critical, distributed systems problem. The classical solution to consensus Paxos is incredibly difficult to implement and is greek to many engineers. Fortunately however, we have Raft - an understandable alternative.

In this talk, Danielle walks you through the basics of Raft and then build a practical example application using a popular Golang Raft library that we all depend on every day.
