This year at OSCON we're trialling virtual attendance to certain tutorials online. If you are unfortunately not able to attend in person, you will still be able to take part remotely.
"Virtual attendees" will be able to pay to attend these sessions over the web:
To sign up for these, head over to the registration page, select "Attend Tutorials Online", and choose which tutorials you'd like to attend. Don't forget too that we're streaming all the OSCON keynote sessions online, free of charge.
Read more on how to access the streamed tutorials.
Sessions tagged with 'scalability'
9:15am–10:00am Tuesday, 07/20/2010
We believe that writing correct concurrent, fault-tolerant and scalable applications is too hard. Most of the time it's because we are using the wrong tools and the wrong level of abstraction. Akka is here to change that.
1:40pm–2:20pm Wednesday, 07/21/2010
Database scalability means different things to different people. Vertical vs. Horizontal scaling? Federating vs. Sharding? Despite the labels database scalability tends to fall into a few common patterns that anyone can apply. In this talk we'll discuss factors for applying these patterns including the life-cycle of your database, how hardware affects your choices, and tools to help you on the way
4:30pm–5:10pm Thursday, 07/22/2010
Apache Traffic Server is an Open Source project implementing a caching HTTP proxy server, donated to the Apache Foundation by Yahoo! We will examine the technical details behind TS, what it's good for, and how you can configure it to accelerate your web traffic.
10:40am–11:20am Wednesday, 07/21/2010
Know before you build. Knowing the principles of distributed systems is the first step in building any large cloud based system.
8:30am–12:00pm Tuesday, 07/20/2010
Google App Engine is an development & hosting platform that lets you build & deploy web applications on Google's high-traffic infrastructure. You only need to upload your code: no more worrying about machines, storage, scalability! This tutorial introduces attendees to its architecture & various service APIs. In the hands-on lab, you'll build+deploy a real app to the cloud using Python in minutes!
8:30am–12:00pm Tuesday, 07/20/2010
Internet traffic spikes aren't what they used to be. It is now evident that even the smallest sites can suffer the attention of the global audience. This presentation dives into techniques to avoid collapse under dire circumstances. Looking at some real traffic spikes, we'll pinpoint what part of the architecture is crumbling under the load; then, walk though stop-gaps and complete solutions.
7:00pm–8:00pm Wednesday, 07/21/2010
Moderated by: Ryan Betts
VoltDB is a new, in-memory, distributed, ACID compliant SQL store designed specifically for high-throughput transactional workloads. Curious to learn more? Come hang out with a VoltDB developer. We'll discuss what it's good at, why we made VoltDB, how it works and what use cases VoltDB solves.
11:30am–12:10pm Thursday, 07/22/2010
Behind the scenes of many successful open source projects is a team of elves who keep the critical project infrastructure (mailing lists, websites, networks, mirrors, etc.). How does Apache run Apache? How does kernel.org run Linux? Learn some of their secrets in this session as the folks behind the curtain come out and share their experiences with the OSCON community.
11:00am–11:40am Friday, 07/23/2010
One piece of software we've found to be particularly useful in scaling our site is Scribe, an open source system for aggregating massive amounts of logging data from thousands of machines, or more generally moving around large amounts of data in an asynchronous and mostly-reliable way.
1:30pm–5:00pm Monday, 07/19/2010
Many people view topics like Map/Reduce and queue systems as advanced concepts that require in-depth knowledge and time consuming software setup. Gearman is changing all that by making this barrier to entry as low as possible with an open source, distributed job queuing system. This session dives into advanced use cases that demonstrate the power and flexibility of distributed architectures.
11:30am–12:10pm Wednesday, 07/21/2010
Google App Engine is an development & hosting platform that lets you build & deploy web applications on Google's high-traffic infrastructure. You only need to upload your code: no more worrying about machines, storage, scalability! This session introduces attendees to its architecture & various service APIs. Time-permitting we'll go through a simple example using Python.
