An explorer of distributed systems. Engineer at PingCAP.
Yann Leretaille is a French-German tech entrepreneur and think-tank founder. He is the CTO and a co-founder of 1aim, a startup aimed at redefining how buildings work, as well as how we relate to the objects around us, and the Good Technology Collective. The collective advocates for rational data collection, greater public awareness of data gathering and use, and the importance of reframing the narrative of a future society centered around Internet of Things (IoT) to one based around the concept of intelligence by design.
Join Yann (Founder, 1aim), Hoverbear (Engineer, PingCAP) and fellow attendees in an ad-hoc space to present and discuss your latest research and experiments in the fields of networking, radio, routing/infrastructure, chaos testing, service discovery, encoding, monitoring, instrumentation, and distributed computing.
How do Tokio reactors work? What are the pitfalls of UTF-8? What are useful design patterns for transactional requests? How can we greater leverage futures? How can we ensure our system behaves as we expect? How can we feel comfortable destroying database nodes in production? How do IMAP and SMTP work anyways?
You are encouraged to bring less than 15 minutes worth of content, a project, or a research paper you find interesting. All attendees will be invited to both ask for a topic to be covered, and present on any topic of interest to the group. Participation is voluntary, of course.
Together, let’s architect the future.
