Videos on Autonomous Computing
Links to presentations on Autonomous Computing: The implications of autonomy in our work.
I’ve been working for many weekends on videos describing the implications of autonomy on our computing. The larger video was pretty long so I broke it into two shorter ones on different themes:
This looks at the intrinsic challenges face by autonomous organizations as the work to provide personal collaborations with their partners yet must manage many shared resources across many partners.
Working across boundaries inherently means messaging across time. The long-running collaboration means accepting uncertainty as out business partners may or may not complete the tasks they’ve signed up to do. This interaction of many partners and shared resources necessarily means management of business risk.
This video is 41 minutes long.

This presentation considers the information that we must manage inside of an autonomous boundary to support the long-running work for individual business operations AND also for resources being managed to share across many long-running operations.
When examining the care and management of these things within the autonomous boundary, we realize that this may be done in a fashion that complies with the patterns laid out in my 2007 CIDR paper: Life Beyond Distributed Transactions. This means that autonomy and its patterns can EMPOWER scalable solutions.
Unfortunately, most implementations do not rigorously follow the path to get scale-agnostic application code while building scalable solutions.
This video is 68 minutes long.
Coming soon: a single video that combines Part 1 and Part 2 without redundant slides.
To make the two videos Part 1 and Part 2 stand independently, there is roughly 20 minutes of overlap in content.
The planned combined presentation tells both stories in somewhat less time for the listener.
I broke them up because the initial combined presentation was almost 90 minutes and seemed overwhelming.
