Topic:
Intro to Application Architecture and Scalability

Abstract:
Software is a lot more complicated than it used to be. Twenty years ago most applications lived on individual machines as executables. Today modern applications run in a combination of environments including web applications, mobile apps, APIs, and databases. In this talk we’ll take a look at the various components that comprise modern web applications, explore performance and scalability, and give a general overview of advanced architectural concepts like caching, database partitioning, NoSQL, microservices, and containerization. By the end of this talk you should have a greater high-level understanding of modern architectural concepts and how the pieces fit together, as well as more knowledge on where and when these approaches are appropriate to use.
