What we can learn from CDNs about Web Development, Deployment, and Performance

CDNs have become a core part of internet infrastructure, and application owners are building them into development and product roadmaps for improved efficiency, transparency and performance.

In his talk, Hooman will share recent learnings about the world of CDNs, how they're changing, and how Devs, Ops, and DevOps can integrate with them for optimal deployment and performance.

Hooman Beheshti is VP of Technology at Fastly, where he develops web performance services for the world's smartest CDN platform. A pioneer in the application acceleration space, Hooman helped design one of the original load balancers while at Radware and has held senior technology positions with Strangeloop Networks and Crescendo Networks. He has worked on the core technologies that make the Internet work faster for nearly 20 years and is an expert and frequent speaker on the subjects of load balancing, application performance, and content delivery networks.

We are back at Animoto this month, and they will have pizza and drinks!
