Distributed system blog posts, podcasts, and presentations are everywhere, but understanding how to actually use various tools, projects, and services? Not so straightforward.

Adron Hall (@adron), Developer Evangelist at DataStax, joins Christina Warren (@film_girl) to break down distributed systems, including what they are (and aren't), then dive into questions to ask as you design distributed data systems and how to weigh pros and cons.
