Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures.

It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...
