In this session Simon will discuss the gritty underbelly of a production web app - deployment, monitoring, scaling, testing, caching, debugging, metrics, reporting and more besides. Running a modern web application in production involves a lot more than just signing up for EC2 and deploying some code. Doing this well is the difference between spending your time building exciting new features and being bogged down fighting fires.
