    Title: Techniques for safe and highly available cloud applications

    Building trustworthy cloud applications is inherently complex and error-prone, and requires developers with a high level of expertise. In this talk, I will discuss sound analyze techniques that leverage recent theoretical advances to safely reduce or even avoid altogether coordinating the execution of operations. The approach consists of modifying operations in a way that application invariants are ensured to be always maintained. When no conflicting updates occur, the modified operations present their original semantics. Otherwise, it uses sensible and deterministic conflict resolution policies that preserve the invariants of the application.
