Zookeper Video and Slides

Zookeper is a coordination service that can provide a lot of help when developing distributed systems (See my previous post about it). An introduction to Zookeper has been recently published. You can see the video and some slides in PDF.

Zookeper uses the file system paradigm but adding some enhancements in synchronization and providing notification. It results really elegant to manage the coordination of a distributed system with Zookeper. Distributed procedures like leader election and distributed locks are simple with Zookeper.
