  3. Discuss on what we just read
  4. Choose a second chapter from the book and read and discuss
  5. Enjoy food and/or drinks (this op runs on a process parallel to the above)

Feel free to come at 6:30pm to order food or just chill at the space!

About the book

Designing Data-Intensive Applications is a recent classic. Written by Martin Kleppmann, it's considered one of the must-read books for software engineers working on the web/cloud/distributed domain.


We'll meet at SPACE4 in Finsbury Park.
