Explore a new concept for developers

Many complex systems exhibit a phenomenon known as a tipping point, moments of rapid and dramatic change that is often irreversible. Software engineers are also confronted with moments of dramatic change as projects grow.

Everything changes when a project outgrows a single database, a request-response communication style, or requires background processing or batch processing. That change includes our developer experience which was simple and delightful up to this point. However, once crossing the threshold, our developer experience becomes complex and dreadful.

So, what do we do about this?

Key takeaways
In this talk, Temporal's Principal Engineer, Dominik Tornow, will introduce a new concept that addresses the tipping point phenomenon. Join our 30-minute conversation to learn:

  • The difference between a linear and non-linear developer experience
  • The difference between durable execution and volatile execution
  • Next steps to implement a delightful developer experience
