Fallacies of Distributed Computing

Get free access to Udi Dahan's Fallacies of Distributed Computing course


Change how you think about designing software systems

The Fallacies of Distributed Computing were formalized nearly 20 years ago and, despite the passage of time and advances in technology, the principles behind them still hold true. What’s more, falling prey to the fallacies can cause even more damage today because of the size and scope of the systems we build.

The course -- led by one of the world’s foremost experts on distributed systems -- will show you how to recognize and avoid the mistakes that still plague how developers design systems today.
