Abstract: In todays environment all companies need to structure their product and codebase to run on multiple interconnected machines at the same time. Much in the same way in which design patterns allowed companies to grow large codebases early on by providing common solutions that were reused for scalability, there is a new set of emerging design patterns that allows engineers to write easily extendable and durable distributed code. This talk will cover some of the new emerging distributed trends.
