My Article on “Planning for Failure”

Sunday, March 24 2013

I wrote an article based on the half day workshop that Brent Stineman and I put together for CodeMash.  The article is entitled “Planning for Failure in Cloud Applications” and it’s posted over on the Cloud category for Simple Talk.

Brent and I collaborated on the content, and took a lot of it from our own experience as well as learning from others so it’s definitely more of a summary of prevalent practices.  One analogy I make in the article regarding the space shuttle and the number of computers on board actually came from one of the attendees of the workshop.  Every time I present or teach someone I also learn, which is why I love it.
