Joe Stump, lead architect of Digg, an expert in the field of web programming with more than 10 years experience, will cite real-world examples of what works and what doesn’t in terms of scaling web applications. Stump will explore the benefits of caching, parallel and asynchronous data requests, partitioning your database when scaling out your infrastructure.
