„The move to the cloud is accelerating, and companies everywhere are forsaking their datacenters (or not buiding ones to begin with) and building their systems on advanced public cloud. However, the systems they are building are often architected based on practices and perceptions which are no longer relevant in the cloud. It’s mostly „partly cloudy“ out there. This talk challenges innate assumptions and shows provocative new ideas on how one should engineer in the cloud“
