In this meetup, we’ll uncover how to build cloud-native applications designed to scale effortlessly in dynamic environments. If you’re a seasoned developer or just getting started with cloud-native architecture, we’ll offer valuable insights and practical tips for designing robust, scalable applications.

We’ll also explore distributed SQL, an evolved database architecture built from the ground up to deliver the transactional guarantees of relational databases and the horizontal scale of NoSQL databases. Our speakers will dive into the principles, challenges, and best practices of utilizing this database architecture effectively in your applications.

We hope to see you there!
