Clearly described the problem and tradeoffs related to the CAP theorem.

Had some practical analytical approaches to providing available services vs consistent services.

Nice explanation of timeouts.

Well spoken with good examples. I liked the emphasis on data based decisions. Would have liked more talk on practical solutions beyond caching (perhaps not possible in the given time).

I enjoyed the honest discussion of the drawbacks to SOA's that are excluded from most Microservices talks. SOA's do add a lot of complexity, which is hard to manage. I didn't gain a lot from the Prisoner's Dilemma analogy, but many good tips about handling service failures were given (caching!), which I plan to put right to use as we are currently breaking out parts of our app into services.
