How to rumour — eventually consistent information exchange in a distributed blockchainConference
An epidemic model was important in software engineering far before the COVID-19 pandemic hit the modern world. It is widely used for rumour spread modeling and design in information exchange. We are going to walk you through our journey with the highly complex distributed blockchain system. Throughout this story, you will learn about the architectural drivers we have faced, the communication models we have decided on, and the consequences of these decisions. The whole story is based on the real, living, and publicly available system that we have been actively working on. Although some niche terms found in math (category theory), blockchain, and Scala might be used in the presentation — there is no need for you to know them upfront as the focus is solely on architecture. You can learn how 50, 100, and many more nodes can easily talk to each other to get a distributed consensus.
Scheduled on Friday from 13:30 to 14:20 in Room 3
