Database Internals by Alex Petrov

Lauro’s first review of the year

it was amazing
Excellent book! It goes a bit in the direction of what Design Data-intensive applications goes when it talks about distributed systems, dist transactions and so on.
But this book goes some steps further: explaining how the db represents data internally, and also explaining distributed systems algorithms.

Excellent read!

If you are still not familiar with gRPC, this is a good introductory book. It has good and practical examples and points out to good places for further research.
