Something I really like about living in the city is the fact that it is made for the masses. Despite its many defects (the rain not being one), Seattle is architected to enable hundreds of thousands of people to go through their busy days. It has a transportation system that interconnects different areas, it mandates different land usage policies for parks, residences, commerces and schools, and it provides restricted parking zones. It is designed for walking (assuming you like hills), it provides easy access to hospitals and it is guarded by police and fire departments.

Readers are assumed to have at least a passing familiarity with an object-oriented language and an actor-oriented language (e.g. Erlang, Pony). Note that objects and actors are orthogonal abstractions and therefore a language may implement both – Pony is an example. Language abstractions orthogonal to both objects and actors will not be considered here, e.g. static vs. dynamic typing. Because Pony mixes objects and actors, this paper will use Erlang as the prototype for actors in order to draw a sharper contrast between objects and actors. Further exposition of Pony will require its own paper.

328. Pool Architecture for Saas

Most of the startups facing scaling problems move to microservices. Inspired by cell-based architecture, it split services per function and scale only specific features. It works especially well for B2C where traffic is uniformly spread across users. However, B2B can face a different type of scaling issue where only one user is scaling. A pool architecture is a simpler yet powerful solution, used both by GAFA and fast-growing startups.

Having recently worked with young web developers who were exposed for the first time to proper production infrastructure, I received many questions about the various components that one can find in the architecture of a "Web service". These questions clearly expressed the confusion (and sometimes the frustration) of developers who understand how to create endpoints in a high-level language such as Node.js or Python, but were never introduced to the complexity of what happens between the user's browser and their framework of choice. Most of the time they don't know why the framework itself is there in the first place.
