“Spotify is a music streaming service with more than 24 millions users in 55 markets, and a catalogue of over 20 million songs.
The Spotify backend is a massive distributed system that is highly complex and hard to grasp. It handles extraordinary amounts of data. Still, individual services are surprisingly small and simple. This talk will go into detail of a Spotify service works and how the UNIX philosophy of composing components that does a single thing well, works on a greater scale. We’ll cover of how services are built and common patterns for, for example, storage, networking and logging.”
