Distributed systems and the RAFT Protocol

Tuesday, September 19, 2017 - 19:00
New York MongoDB User Group
New York

Excited to kick off our Fall events with a user group focused on RAFT. 

Replica sets in MongoDB are built upon consensus algorithms for leader election and operation log replication. So we're excited to have Laura Hampton join our community to talk about Raft implementation in Python

Raft Implementation in Python 

Computing infrastructure is becoming increasingly distributed, but how do such systems work? This talk will introduce the Raft distributed consensus algorithm as implemented in Python. In this talk, you will learn how Raft works, and how it solves the problem of replicating data across multiple state machines.

Laura Hampton is a Python developer living in New York, who has implemented a version of the Raft distributed consensus algorithm in Python. She is excited to share her knowledge with the MongoDB community.

We'll have pizza and refreshments for all who attend! See you there!
