5 Essential Techniques for Building Fault-tolerant Systems

Building add-ons for Atlassian products today means building a Connect add-on and running it as a service in your own infrastructure, or a PaaS provider’s infrastructure, or (more commonly) a set of microservices. While this has many benefits, the transition from monolithic to distributed systems brings with it additional failure modes that simply do not manifest in the world of local function calls. Join Atlassian developer Diego Berrueta for a walk-through of 5 resilience techniques that will help keep your services rock-solid in the face of unreliable, slow, or faulty systems.

Topics covered:
Scalability, Best Practices, Cloud

12 Ways to Supercharge Your Connect Add-on

It's one thing for developers to write a Connect add-on. It's a whole different thing to run it in a production mode. When you consider both development and production, a series of questions emerges:

  • How do I reduce the cost and overhead of administering environments (servers)?
  • How can I build in scalability from the start?
  • How can I enable continuous deployment?

The 12-factor application principles are often cited as the solution. Using the principles of 12-factor applications, it is much easier to go from rapid development iterations into production. And then to keep the pace of rapid iteration, even as each goes into production. From this talk, you will learn what the 12 factors are and how they can supercharge your Atlassian Connect add-on.
