Hello everyone 👋

We're getting ready for the 8th session of Papers We Love @ Porto. It will be hosted by Talkdesk ( and we'll have an amazing talk for you. We're super happy to have André Freitas talking about Dapper.

Talk: Dapper, a Large-Scale Distributed Systems Tracing Infrastructure

Dapper is a distributed tracing system that Google developed to be able to diagnose all requests that microservices make to each other, originated by a single request (e.g. Searching something at Google). André will present the paper and the conclusions Google learned while developing this tool internally.

This paper inspired tools such as Zipkin and will help you understand what are the implications of using a Distributed Tracing System.


Doors will open around 18:30 and we'll start the discussion after a quick introduction of the meetup, around 19:00.

After we can grab dinner nearby!

Hope to see you soon 🎉
