Session: Composing Software – Avoiding the distributed monolith

For the last few years, there have been a surge of new tools for building scalable software. Tools like MS Orleans and Akka all try to solve problems in the area of high throughput and low latency in a distributed environment. This however result in a problem known as the ”distributed monolith”, you are locked in to a specific framework, a specific language and platform. This talk aims to show how to build the same kind of systems, without the platform and framework lock in.
