In this episode of the InfoQ podcast Charles Humble talks to Michael Perry about his book “The Art of Immutable Architecture”. They discuss topics including the eight fallacies of distributed computing: a set of assertions made by L Peter Deutsch and others at Sun Microsystems describing false assumptions that programmers new to distributed applications invariably make. Other topics include Pat Helland’s paper “Immutability Changes Everything”, Eric Brewer's CAP Theorem, eventual consistency, location independent identity, and CRDTs. They also discuss how the approach to building distributed systems advocated by Perry could be introduced to a real-world enterprise app that needs to integrate with mutable downstream systems.
