Distill Buzzwords & Build Fast, Scalable Systems

RSVP Required - Building fast, scalable systems is about more than just the speed at which a request can be serviced. We must take into account how we scale a system’s throughput, persisted data size, hardware, contributing team members, and new features.
While Non-Blocking IO, Asynchrony, Parallelism, Data denormalization, NoSql, and the Cloud may be mysterious concepts, modern tools, frameworks, and languages have made these much easier to exercise and apply to scalable systems.
In this workshop, we will distill these buzz words and focus on concepts using real code examples (Javascript, Scala, Java and Groovy, etc.).
*How non-blocking IO and an asynchronous, reactive programming model help increase throughput.
*Core differences between databases.
*What should be taken into account when deciding on the right persistence model for a project.
*Best practices in aligning our domain and persistence models.
*Measuring our system and progress.
*Common pitfalls and anti-patterns in scaling.
A basic understanding of how the internet works, web programming, and one or more programming languages.
What to Bring:
Nothing is required, however we will be working with real code so a laptop is suggested if the attendee would like to hack along.
