How we designed Dropbox ATF: an async task framework

Reading time: 15mins

I've built a number of async task schedulers/orchestrators over my career, so I really appreciated the detail that Arun Sai Krishnan shares in this article with how they designed one at Dropbox. I particularly like how he calls out what they are optimising for ("System guarantees"), constraints ("Lambda requirements"). This is also a really great example of a very readable design document.
