We don’t know how the 2012 Olympics went, but we do know it has had a major impact on the BBC’s web architecture.
This talk will cover how the BBC managed (or didn’t) to handle a major sporting event alongside mantaining business as usual on the same shared hosting platform with tight budgetary constraints.
Topics very likely to come up:
* Preparing to push BBC to CDN.
* Problems we encountered during The Games.
* Web Security; Bejing Olympics reportedly had 12M cyber attacks during the games!
* What we would have done differently.
* What we didn’t have time or money to do.
* Caching, Cookies and Varnish.
* Monitoring and Logging.
* Pretty graphs!
