This is your opportunity to ask questions, get help fixing problems, show your code to the group to get feedback. We've got lots of experience in the room, so this is the place to get real answers.Presentation Abstract
The internet is becoming an increasingly bigger place, and more and more web apps are having to deal with the problem of scale. This situation is no more acute than in the social app space which combines high interactivity with high traffic.
Matt will talk about some of the problems faced and the real-world lessons learned building a high-traffic social app capable of serving hundreds of thousands of users and millions of page views per day.
Then, we will discuss in depth how to migrate large tables on a live app without affecting availability using some applied knowledge of the workings of MySQL.Bio
Matt Freels is an avid Rubyist and has been working with Ruby and Rails for the last three years. He is currently a Software Engineer at Serious Business, creators of such fine social games as Friends for Sale and Rock Legends on the Facebook platform.
