Hi Alexander, really enjoying your book (and Snowplow). My question is about how you realize the benefits of an ordered log when various events are distributed differently because they use differing partition keys. For example, if I want to take action on the combination of user events and inventory events, how can I guarantee that two different systems, or a restored system, will read the log in the same way given that the relevant events are distributed to different shards of my stream? You touch on this distributed vs unified question briefly in 2.1.3 - and I understand the need for scalability and reliability, just wondering how I replicate order-depended functions with multiple independent shards. Thanks!
