“BUILD STUFF” is a Software Development Conference for people who actually build stuff. We bring world-class speakers, letting them share about the latest developments, trends and innovations, as well as new directions in software development. Since launching in 2012, it’s really caught on quickly.

Recognized by developers from all over Europe, international Software Development Conference Build Stuff’15 Lithuania will feature 3 days (18-20 Nov’15) of conference sessions and 2 days (21-22 Nov’15) of workshops.

(SLIDES) Diego Ongaro @ongardie - The Raft Consensus Algorithm

Consensus is fundamental to building fault-tolerant systems, but it's poorly understood. We struggled to build a complete system using Paxos, so we developed the Raft consensus algorithm to be easier to understand. Since releasing our first paper draft in 2012, Raft has been implemented in dozens of libraries and systems, and it's now taught at over ten universities. In this talk, I'll give an overview of how Raft works. More info on Raft can be found at https://raft.github.io .

Professor in computer science, @ongardie
Diego completed his PhD with Professor John Ousterhout at Stanford University in 2014. During his PhD, he worked on RAMCloud (a key-value store with 5-10 microsecond latency), the Raft consensus algorithm, and LogCabin (a coordination service built with Raft). He recently joined the... Read More →
