If you have a question about this talk, please contact Matthew Ireland.

The CAP theorem has been around as one of the commandments of distributed system design for about two decades now. That being said there is still some confusion about its actual meaning and implications. In this talk I will present different approaches to defining and reasoning about the CAP theorem, and the impact that it has on distributed system design.

I will go on to examine some philosophies based on CAP , and the systems that follow them. Finally, I will present possible extensions to the reasoning brought about by the theorem, and how these apply to existing systems.
