GlueCon 2013 Notes: Keynote: Ushering in the Bronze Age of Distributed Application Tooling – John Sheehan, Runscope

Keynote: Ushering in the Bronze Age of Distributed Application Tooling – John Sheehan, Runscope

  • Services are the new process
  • Service dependencies are still code dependencies
  • Debugging becomes more difficult and tools are missing
  • Need to debug: code, server, network, API code, API database, API server, API network (plus cloud vendor issues)
  • Code, server, and network are in the control of the developer, but the API is often outside of a developer’s control
  • We need to be able to monitor and mitigate failures of consumed APIs
  • Netflix OSS tools help monitor and debug, since they are service-centric
  • He quit his job and took his experience from Twillio and IFTTT to build a better hammer
  • Built Runscope to help inspect, debug, and test API integrations
