Sticky session aren't a bad word


Building stateless http servers has been the standard architecture for SaaS companies for the last ten years. Requirements for continuous uptime, scalability and low cost have pushed companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Typesafe and VictorOps back towards architectures where processing and data co-exist in the same memory space. In this talk we will explore what you need in order to build a stateful system and the benefits and tradeoffs of the transition.

Learn how to rethink some of the basic building block of a system in order to run them in a stateless architecture including:

  * Deployment

  * Serialization and Marshalling

  * Reactive programming

  * Event sourcing
