Weekly Tech Notes #13: Threads

🎬 This week’s video dives into Meta’s journey in re-architecting their asynchronous computing platform. Besides splitting the system into smaller pieces to better follow the single-responsibility principle, they also switched from a pull-based to a push-based model. This brought many benefits including less latency caused by errors and better load balancing across regions.

Now let’s dive into some readings. This week is almost all about Meta sources, from their new social app Threads to their asynchronous computing platform. We conclude with a post about capacity planning. Let’s go! 🚀

And that’s all for this week! 👋
