On the internet, there seems to be two kinds of information available to do with "scaling rails", or on "scaling" in general. Blog posts about how the really big boys are doing things Blog posts full of non-production benchmarks explaining why you need a particular data store, templating framework, or anything else to be "web-scale" This talk will hopefully be a third kind, practical advice to help you grow your application at the right pace alongside your business' growth, based on real world experience. Topics covered will (probably) include: Why you should probably choose Postgres or Mysql as your data store Why going from one developer to two developers is the hardest Why going from one server to two servers is the hardest Why those two things are actually the same problem How YAGNI and SRP apply to your hosting just as much as your code How you balance your cost-speed-quality stool for developing your app up against the same cost-speed-quality tripod for your infrastructure Why other people's advice on the topic can only ever provide a starting point, not a final answer
