This describes a pattern language for distributed computing that guides readers through the best practices and introduce them to key areas of building distributed software systems. POSA4 connects hundreds of stand-alone patterns, pattern collections, and pattern languages from the existing body of literature found in the POSA series. Such patterns relate to and are useful for distributed computing to a single language. The book provides a consistent and coherent holistic view on the craft of building distributed systems.
