Like modern web apps, start-ups are distributed systems
I’ve been thinking about distributed systemsa lot lately. While the last decent code I wrote was in Logo, it suddenly dawned on me that I deal with a particular type of distributed system every day: start-ups. Let’s examine a few of the similarities.
Modern web-scale applications like Google,(s goog) Twitter, Netflix,(s nflx) LinkedIn,(s lknd) etc. are implemented as distributed systems as opposed to single monolithic codebases.
