Consensus in Distributed Systems

As part of a series of monthly slots giving team members an opportunity to present about a topic of their interest, I recently gave a talk to the Geckoboard engineering team about consensus in distributed systems.

We took a brief tour of the challenges presented by the CAP theorem, before diving into the Raft consensus algorithm.

The video was recorded from a conference call, so the audio isn’t great!
