This book aims to show how to structure your applications to make them scalable, reliable, and maintainable in the long term. Author Martin Kleppmann examines the key principles, algorithms, and trade-offs of data systems. He examines the pros and cons of various technologies for processing and storing data.
Software keeps changing, but the fundamental principles remain the same. With this book, software engineers and architects will learn how to apply those ideas in practice, and how to make full use of data in modern applications.
