Intro to Application Architecture and Scalability

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.

Matt focuses on building quality software applications using C#, F#, TypeScript, Angular, Vue.js, and plain-old JavaScript. When he’s not teaching or coding, Matt writes on software engineering at KillAllDefects.com, maintains Side.Dev, builds highly unusual side projects, goes on refactoring frenzies, and enjoys learning new things to share with the community at large. Matt is currently writing The New Developer’s Guide to Application Architecture and Scalability.
