Ruby can't scale. Tell that to LivingSocial, GroupOn, Gowalla, Sony, and the rest of our community pushing millions of requests per day. Scaling an application isn't about piling up hardware and dropping in the newest database fad, it's the combination of design and refinement.
In this session, we'll look at refining Ruby code using tools to:
This is not about info-porn. It's about finding the 1% of your code that, through optimization, can dramatically improve performance.
The fastest query is the one never run - Using Microsoft Server AppFabric Cache you can dramatically improve the performance of your web / enterprise application without investing in big hardware or complicated programming. We'll take a real-world application with performance issues, add AppFabric cache to it to demonstrate the difference even short term caching can make to your application. We'll then walk through how you can make this effortless using code injection. The code samples will be specific to AppFabric and .NET but the concepts and approaches are common to many application platforms.
