My deep interest in databases brought me this to the papers we love meetup for the very first time. The event was hosted at Github HQ, which is a very cool product and a very cool office.
Google Spanner is Google’s approach to globally distributed database and is built by the best brains at Google. There were a lot of interesting techniques including clock syncing, using a delta between real time, fault tolerance and really distributed across data centers. The talk was presented by Ben.
