Building Keiko, the distributed work queue behind Spinnaker

Spinnaker

INTERMEDIATE

The killer feature of Netflix's Spinnaker is its advanced and highly composable orchestration service, Orca. Behind this, and other services within Spinnaker, is a distributed work queue system called Keiko. In this talk, I'll go over a brief history of Orca before Keiko and why Keiko was built, what it has bought us and then lead into its design and general-purpose applicability as an off-the-shelf work queue system that you can use in your own projects.
