Big Content and Rails | MongoDB and Everyday Data
Date: Thurs, Sept 1, 7pm
Location: Storek Building, 155 9th St, San Francisco, CA
We added a second talk for the SF Ruby on Rails meetup next week. Will Shulman, CEO and Co-founder of MongoLab, will come in and talk about MongoDB and it's use for everyday data.
Talk 1: Big Content and Rails
How to build a large scale content site in Rails that is rocking fast.
Winton Welsh and Tung Nguyen from the BleacherReport will talk about their web stack and how they've structured their architecture to handle lots of content and lots of traffic.
* Lessons learned from growing a site from 100k daily uniques to 1.5 million daily uniques.
* Deploying schema changes to huge database tables.
* How to not block passengers.
* Sysadmin tricks for app developers.
* Managing high frequency writes to MySQL and what to do when you hit the limit.
* Why endusers should never build a cache and how we prevent that from happening.
* When does it makes sense to split out application features into separate services?
* The future of caching at Bleacher Report: the tool that you've (probably) never heard of.
Talk 2: MongoDB - It's not just about Big Data
Will Shulman, CEO and Co-founder of MongoLab, will talk about MongoDB and it's use for everyday data. While MongoDB is perhaps best known for solving big data problems, there are some great reasons to use MongoDB to back your application even if you don't have a lot of data.
Sponsor - Pizza and Beer
