Stateful vs Stateless

My next blog post is going to be a healthy debate on when to remain stateless and when to be stateful.

Let’s dive in and get a picture of what it looks like to signup, commit and compete in a bike race and achieve the goal. Signup First things first, we need to understand what the El Tour De Tucson is and my specific goal of a 102-mile ride course.
