These days, almost all content must be designed with streaming applications in mind, and almost all systems must be designed with the goal of latency minimization. In this power hour, we will discuss the factors in a streaming system that contribute to latency, and learn which ones we can control, and which ones we can't. We will go over basic system design principles to help minimize latency and discuss the trade-offs necessary for ultra-low latency systems. 

Join the March Power Hour to:

  • Identify the factors that contribute to latency
  • Learn which ones can be controlled and how
  • Understand the system design principles to help minimize latency
  • Recognize how to balance need for low latency with the trade-offs inherent
