The ARPANET was the great experiment in networking that gave us the Internet. This talk is an adaptation of Katie Hafner and Matthew Lyon’s book ‘Where wizards stay up late - The Origins of the Internet’
There is much this origin story can teach us that is relevant to our practice today. This talk explores how vision, purpose, measurement, testing in production, building in health checks, refactoring for resilience and embracing exaptation worked then and work today.
This talk was presented at Pipeline Conference March 2018
