Building the next version of the Smoke Framework


Last year the Encoding Platform team within Prime Video launched a number of web services written in Swift using the Smoke Framework. This talk will start by looking back at the development and motivation for the Smoke Framework and discuss our experiences of launching in production. The talk will finish by looking forward to see how we are using these experiences and the evolution of the Server Side Swift eco-system to improve the operational performance of applications written using the Smoke Framework in areas such as logging, metrics and traceability.
