// About Tom

Tom has a passion for optimizing application development, focussing not just on technology but on the process and people that make it happen. Away from work, when he’s not chasing after his two sons, or cycling through the Mendips, Tom loves smashing shuttlecocks at unfortunate victims playing badminton!
// Sam Williams - Consensus Algos
Today I will talk about something that is provably impossible, making computers agree on stuff. Then I’ll go over some ways of doing it anyway. I’m fascinated by consensus (making computers agree). I think it can dramatically simplify systems, is often over looked, covered in FUD and in need of some attention. Let’s give it some!
