Presentation: "Scaling Rails for the Enterprise"

Time: Wednesday 14:15 - 15:15

Location: Stanford

Abstract: At this point hopefully we've all dispelled the myth that "Rails can't scale", but that doesn't mean you're off the hook just yet. With great dynamic languages comes great responsibility. In this talk we will walk through the latest methods and tools to scale rails in the Enterprise. From page caching to partial caching, query caching to memcached, and message queues to asynchronous processing, we'll show when to use each technique and give some code samples you can take home and use in your own applications.
