Turn It Up To 11 - Scaling Rails To 100k rps

We've all heard the "Rails can't scale" myth, but how far can we scale Rails? This is a story about a one year project scaling a REST API for concert ticketing and ecommerce to huge presale events and the lessons learned on the way.

Topics include

  • HTTP Caching on a Budget
  • Redis is Your Friend
  • Waiting Queue Architectures
  • How not to Blow up Your Database
  • How to Test Scale
  • Tips and Tricks for Concurrent Writing

I won't be there on the March Meetup, but would be available for April
