Building one of the biggest e-commerce systems can't have been easy and there will have been many lessons learnt!
Scala Based Services Resilience In The Real World
At Ocado we need to orchestrate tens of micro-services. In my team we have been using Scala stack for the past few years to successfully deliver quality products to our customers. I would like to bring some lessons we have learnt when building one of the biggest e-commerce systems. The lessons include some known patterns and principles applied to service communication such as timeouts, retries, circuit-breakers, speculative tasks.
I will present the caveats of services communication along with the methods of detecting the issues and Scala tools we used to address them including AWS Beanstalk, Akka, Monix, Sttp and more.
