Lesson 169 - Atomic vs. Eventual Transactions  
(September 11, 2023)

In lesson 109 I talked about BASE transactions and eventual consistency in distributed architectures. In this lesson I dive deeper into the differences between ACID and BASE transactions, and what it means to have an “atomic” transaction in a distributed architecture. I then compare atomic transactions to eventual consistency transactions, showing the differences for both happy path (when things go well) to error conditions (when things do not go so well).
