Lesson 176 - Compensating Updates Revisited  
(December 18, 2023)

In lesson 148 I talked about what Neal Ford and I coined as the 10th Fallacy of Distributed Computing: "Compensating updates always work”, and the issues associated with compensating updates (no, they DON’T always work). In this lesson I expand on that lesson to talk about some of the ways to work around compensating update failures while at the same time providing transactional isolation within a distributed transaction.
