Down with the fancy pants! -- How people have been optimizing the wrong things and increased complexity.

A session at Velocity 2012

Wednesday 27th June, 2012

3:50pm to 4:30pm (PST)

Simplicity pays in scalability. Simplicity pays in security. Instead of building "optimized" systems based on more complex solutions, focus on simplifying interfaces, code and, yes, technologies used. Instead of rearchitecting your entire infrastructure, re-learn some basic unix philosophy and appreciate the simple things in life. Screw the new hotness, here comes sanity.
