A website’s infrastructure always starts simply and for good reason, we don’t have users and we want to get back to writing code.
But, as a website grows, that Apache config you copied from stackoverflow is going to hit the wall. So in this talk we’ll cover the problems, signs of impending doom and typical solutions needed to get from 10 users to 100 million.
This is a mid-level technical talk, aimed at the developer or ops guy who’s looking at the next step, or wondering where the last one went wrong.
