Scalable Design Patterns

A session at Surge 2010

Thursday 30th September, 2010

10:00am to 11:00am (EST)

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).
