Ever wonder what powers collaborative applications like Google Docs or superstar new companies like Figma? Why does it seem like every app these days has “live sharing” or multiplayer capabilities? How do those apps automatically resolve data conflicts? And what does that say about the future of disconnected mobile and IoT apps? Come discover the unique potential of Conflict-Free Replicated Data Types (CRDTs). Recent achievements in research now make CRDTs performant and ready for production enterprise workloads. It’s now possible, with CRDTs, to write collaborative applications where people or machines can be the actors. CRDTs present a compelling argument for a new architectural approach to distributed systems, where servers can be used, but aren’t required. Screen reader support enabled.
