Designing Data-Intensive Applications


First impression

The book has just arrived (<2017-07-11 Tue 11:42>) and I just skimmed through it and looked at the index. My first impression is good: the book is about fundamentals rather than specific technologies. Another plus is the rich bibliographies that end the chapter. I also like the maps that open several sections: I don't know why exactly but I have a penchant for that type of illustrations in technical books. Another nice touch were the quotations: randomly opening the book I found two by Alan Kay, whom I greatly admire.

The book

Part I discusses the storage of data on a singole machine, Part II changes that assumption ans talks about the problem of distributing data across several interconnected machines, using replication or partitioning.
