Distributed Systems Pattern: Leader and Followers

In a distributed system, it's often best to not make all the nodes equal. Unmesh shows how a leader can simplify coordination across a cluster, and how choosing that leader is often tricky.

Distributed Systems Pattern: High-Water Mark

Unmesh adds High-Water Mark to his collection of patterns. The high-water mark is an index into the log file that records the last log entry that is known to have successfully replicated to a Quorum of followers. The leader also passes on the high-water mark to its followers during its replication. All servers in the cluster should only transmit data to clients that reflects updates that are below the high-water mark.

How leaders use decision framing to build autonomy and alignment

It seems impossible to talk about leadership without discussing decision making. The two topics are inextricably linked. Making decisions, and making them well, is a core expectation of leaders. Google’s manager research identified “Is a Strong Decision Maker” as a common behavior across high-scoring managers.

Patterns of Distributed Systems

Over the last few months, my colleague Unmesh Joshi has been running workshops to teach developers about distributed systems design. In this work he's been delving into many open-source distributed systems and identifying patterns. As he writes them up, he's publishing the patterns on my site.

Today he's publishing an initial narrative article that ties the first batch of patterns together, and two of these patterns: Heartbeat and Generation Clock. He has another handful of patterns close to publication that he hops to publish over the next few weeks, and more will come as he continues to develop this work.

The Innovator's Cunundrum

Even as the pandemic hits sales, [automakers] need to pour vast sums into developing electrical vehicles - with absolutely no guarantee of success.

-- FT Lex, July 29, 2020

Socioeconomic systems in transition are impossible to navigate. At the same time that the old order is in collapse, the keys to the new order are very difficult to forge. Plenty of people bet and lost - in many cases quite tragically - during the 1918 Russian revolution, the great depression that began in 1929, the 2008 financial crisis, as well as in many other transitions in between. It is easy…

Inception and team happiness

Some time ago, I did facilitate a final retrospective for a team that has worked together for more than a year. Two of my passions are inceptions and retrospectives. So, during the retrospective, I was very interested on hearing more insights about that team view on inceptions. Being a retrospective facilitator is very rewarding. Besides […]

Weekends — a much needed time for Entrepreneurs

 

The truth is when you are an entrepreneur there is no weekend and it’s not by any compulsion but because of the passion, you have for your startup. The majority of the entrepreneurs would echo this line of thought.

If you are an entrepreneur and taking the weekend off then maybe you are just in a glorified job with no boss to report to.

All days are the same!

For entrepreneurs, work is their passion, their life, their baby. It’s for a reason you have left a few things behind to venture and create it. In fact, work is not

Resultado-chave versus atividades para alcançar o Resultado-chave

Percebi que várias pessoas confundem “Resultado-chave” com “Atividades para alcançar Resultado-chave”. Muitas vezes, eu facilito uma sessão para uma equipe definir seus OKRs. E eu tenho visto essa confusão, em muitas equipes. Veja o exemplo de OKR a seguir (do artigo do Felipe Castro sobre OKR): Objetivo: criar uma experiência incrível para o cliente Resultado-chave: […]

Parking lot, a facilitator tool to keep a focused conversation

The Parking lot helps to track any items, ideas and issues that are raised during an activity, but may not be useful to discuss at that specific time in the workshop. It is an essential toolkit for the facilitator as it provides a polite way to say “yes, I heard you. But it is not […]
