SE Radio 397: Pat Helland on Data Management with Microservices

Pat talks about trends in storage and computing, state management, immutable data storage, and idempotent computation. He also talks about various ways to look at data — “inside” vs. “outside,” “prescriptive” vs. “descriptive” data that is “right” and “right now” with some clever real world analogies and examples.
