Practical Consistency (YAPC)

Original abstract

Distributed database consistency is a jargon-filled tarpit - of great interest to theorists but misunderstood or ignored by developers. But it doesn’t have to be. What if you had a simple mental model for reasoning about consistency? What if you had simple rules of thumb for making the right tradeoffs in your applications? MongoDB staff engineer David Golden will share ideas for practical consistency and demonstrate how to achieve it with the MongoDB Perl driver.
