During this Meetup we’d like to take you on a guided-tour through StudyPortals’ history and show you how we’ve managed to scale the technology behind our platform from 20,000 visits/month to nearly 80,000 sessions/day. This involves lessons from the past and a look to the future.
18:15 - 19:15
Food (Healthy this time around!)
19:15 - 20:00
The focus of our first talk is around our main CMS and API-systems (written in PHP; backed by MySQL) and how it evolved over the years as we grew. These lessons are by no means limited to that technology-stack.
20:15 - 21:00
We turn to the future. The maturity of current Cloud-services offers many opportunities that weren’t around a few years ago. How can one transition into a more micro-service orientated architecture. We talk about the use of Docker, AWS ELB and AWS Lambda and how they can help to make significantly more scalable products that are much easier to maintain.
Drinks (including beer) & Networking.
