深圳特区报官方网站:Architecting a Modern Financial Institution with Vitor Olivier, Thoughts on Immutability, CI/CD, FP
深圳风采开奖号码 www.ljvch.cn This week’s podcast features a chat with Vitor Olivier. Olivier is a partner at NuBank (a technology-centric bank in Brazil). This podcast hits on topics from several of Nubank’s recent QCon talks and includes things like: Nubank’s stack, functional programming, event sourcing, defining service boundaries, recommendations on reasoning about services, tips (or tweaks) on the second iteration of their initial architecture and more.
- Property-based testing and Schemas (or Clojure.Spec) are complementary.
- Clojure’s functional nature and Datomic’s features are a match for Nubank’s requirements.
- A (micro)service needs to be able to create the full representation of the core feature it’s handling.
- GraphQL is useful to abstract away the distributed system complexity from the mobile (or frontend) developers.
- NuBank’s uses a combination of monitoring and sanity checks in real time at various levels to keep systems consistent. Once an invariant is broken, the system will try to fix it automatically.
- Event sourcing architecture offers time-series debugging and improves confidence in the system.
- 1:24 - What is Nubank?
- 2:32 - Compete by continuously improving the product.
- 4:15 - Functional programming a good fit for banking logic.
- 5:30 - Datomic as persistence layer.
- 8:03 - Consistency considerations.
- 9:17 - Accounting view of the world. Maintaining consistency between Nubank’s microservices through monitoring and sanity checks in real time at various levels.
- 14:30 - Functions get applied to incoming events, stored in temporary version of database; perform sanity checks. If sanity checks pass, the changes are committed, if not, check which invariants are broken and try to fix automatically.
- 16:12 - Property-based (or generative) testing to find corner cases. Schemas exist for various types and can be used to generate tests.
- 19:12 - Why use Clojure? Because of Datomic. Clojure makes imperative code look bad; it's useful to stick to functional practices.
- 21:08 - The Nubank team.
- 25:14 - Lessons learned building microservices, both building services that did either too much or services that could have been combined into one.
- 27:18 - How to choose boundaries for microservices. A service needs to be able to create the full representation of the core feature it’s handling.
- 34:39 - How Nubank uses GraphQL. Abstracts away the distributed system complexity from the mobile developers.
- Olivier’s talk at QCon NYC goes into detail on the Nubank architecture
- Nubank’s Edward Wible and Rafael Ferreira talk on Nubank
- A sample of talks about Property-based testing
QCon is a practitioner-driven conference designed for technical team leads, architects, and project managers who influence software innovation in their teams. QCon takes place 7 times per year in London, New York, San Francisco, Sao Paolo, Beijing & Shanghai. QCon San Francisco is at its 12th Edition and will take place Nov 5-9, 2018. 140+ expert practitioner speakers, 1300+ attendees and 18 tracks will cover topics driving the evolution of software development today.
