KWRuby May: "How to make Rails faster than the speed of light" by Jay El-Kaake

Details

In this talk Jay will explore the steps the team at Fera.ai took to get their Rails application to handle 10,000 "non-cacheble" requests per second without breaking the bank. He will describe how scaling to 10k req/s is difficult, but well documented. The next challenge is to get response times under 50ms for all those requests.

What worked? What didn't? And what will the Fera.ai team explore next?

Jay El-Kaake is the current CEO of [Fera.ai](http://Fera.ai), former CEO of [Smile.io](https://www.smile.io/) and co-author of Amazon top seller [“The Software Engineer’s Guide to Freelance Consulting"](http://www.engineersguidetofreelance.com/), Jay attended UW for Software Engineering and has an MBA from Ivey.
