Scalability issues: cure first, prevent later

Episode: 2012 - 26
Thijs Feryn
The "it works on my machine" mentality has resulted in numerous face palm moments. This is even more painful when a your app is under heavy load due to a marketing campaign. With some minimal code changes and some smart utilities, you can maximize your scalability and performance. Keywords: Varnish, PHP-FPM, Nginx, APC, CDN, Gearman, Memcached and a proper server setup. I'll show you how you can make a slow app with a crappy code base go mighty fast on one and even multiple servers. The focus of this talk is to cure first and eventually learn and prevent.
