In this talk, part of the Code Social Presentation Series, Richard Millan, Rails Engineer at ModCloth talks about managing complexity.

SOA promises scalability, but it is easy to introduce brittleness and overcomplicate an architecture when the right pieces are not introduced. How does a simple application become complex as time passes by? Distributed systems require a different workflow and perspective. What are the key components that are needed to keep the system reliable and easy to maintain while reducing the overall complexity?
