really liked it

Software developers are familiar with the design patterns of low-level code but Burns argues that they can just as easily be applied to larger scale distributed systems and this book attempts to show how.

It’s easy going, sometimes feels “obvious,” (which might be a compliment to its presentation style) and the “hands-on” sections often dive as deep into the weeds as the rest of the book tries to avoid them. (Important points get lost in the abstractions at the high level and obscured by command line parameters lower-down.)

Still, well worth reading.
