iO Associatesare delighted to bring you the next in our series of Java Virtual Meetups! This week, we were joined by Jason Maude, Chief Technology Advocate at Starling Bank, who presented a talk on ‘Ultra-High Reliability Architecture at Scale’.

When building a banking platform from scratch, reliability is a core concern. You have to make sure that every payment and card transaction goes through without a hitch or your customers will stop trusting you.

In this talk we looked at how to build a system that is optimised for reliability, how to test that reliability, and how to retain it as your numbers scale.
