We will dive deep into traditional web architectures and discuss what makes them go. Looking are real-life architectures, we’ll analyze weak points and discuss what will happen to them under the intense pressure of a prolonged exposure on Digg, the NYTimes or even MSN (or when traffic jumps from 15Mbits/second to over 1Gbit/second inside 30 seconds).
In a friendly atmosphere, you will enjoy a mix of anecdotes, war stories, good and bad design principles and more tips and tricks than you could use in a year.
Topics will include:
