"How not to structure your database-backed web applications"


Marina Chirchikova will present Yang et al.'s "How not to structure your database-backed web applications: a study of performance bugs in the wild" (https://hyperloop-rails.github.io/220-HowNotStructure.pdf). This will be a joint meetup between Montreal.rb (https://www.montrealrb.com/) and Papers We Love Montreal, thanks in part to this fascinating paper analyzing performance problems in Rails applications, although the results are applicable for anyone using an ORM in any language.

Adrien Colyer has a great writeup of this paper at https://blog.acolyer.org/2018/06/28/how-_not_-to-structure-your-database-backed-web-applications-a-study-of-performance-bugs-in-the-wild/
