Key Takeaways:

  • Postel’s Law: Be conservative in what you do, be liberal in what you accept from others.
  • We can do better in data than what we did learning decentralization in services: “We have to level up. We can’t repeat the past mistakes. Let’s not be silly and fool ourselves just because we have a schema, now we have an amazing system.”
  • The services world has learned good ways of communicating between producers and consumers. We should look to learn more from them and look to adapt then adopt what works well.
  • Zhamak believes we have to learn to prepare our data for future use cases. Scott note: If she means reuse of data being generated for current use cases, most agree. If she means creating data that doesn’t currently serve a use case, almost everyone else seems to disagree. Time will tell.
