Scalable Design Patterns

Day 1 - 10:00 am

Location: Corinthian

  • Scalability,
  • Web Architectures
Share the love:

Building scalable architecture is not rocket science — it's computer science. The tome "Design Patterns" shows us two things: (1) that there are many applicable approaches to solving common programming problems and (2) people misapply them all the time. In this talk, we'll take a whirlwind tour though different patterns for scalable architecture design and focus on evaluating if each is the right tool for the job. Topics include load balancing, networking, caching, operations management, code deployment, storage, service decoupling and data management (the RDBMS vs. noSQL argument).

Speakers will be added as we approach the event dates. Visit back for updates to this page and the Sessions Calendar.
