Stop inverting the inverted pyramid!

Tiago Caxias

Speed is a key factor that users retain from your application or website.
More than represent your tech DNA it upholds your quality as a product creator.
In this talk I’ll discuss why many systems don’t scale, explain some of the outages you see many times and how to prevent them.
We’ll understand why caching goes a long way but is misunderstood.
From CDNs to web servers to choosing a programming language, frameworks, databases and cross service communication, how they all interact and decide whether you scale out or blackout.
