When he’s not bothering people with meaningless philosophical questions, he enjoys playing football in amateur competitions. At this edition of the ICT Summit, Cornel will speak about Building scalable, resilient and responsive systems. Building systems that scale well (in both directions), are responsive and gracefully handle errors is a notoriously difficult undertaking. Lately, however, these are no longer requirements only for state-of-the-art systems – this is the default for most new applications. In this talk, Cornel will explain what characteristics such systems must have, why they are important and how one must go about achieving them.
