There has been a long-held belief based on the CAP Theorem that it is impossible for a database to have both strong consistency along with global scaling and high availability. This has led to a whole category of databases that don’t have one of the most fundamental features of a database and that is transactions. A whole new generation of databases are rising that bring back transactions and prove that we can have our cake and eat it to! This talk will focus on one example of this, FaunaDB which provides ACID consistency at a global scale. We will look at Scala code examples of using the FaunaDB functional query language to write transactions in a flexible and type safe style.
