I’m super excited to announce that I will be speaking at the nginx conference starting on the 20th. I haven’t really put much content up on this blog for a long while, but for the past year I have been working at a smartphone company called OnePlus. We have gotten a ton of traction in the past few months with press from all over the world and great marketing by our team. This naturally means a lot of traffic to handle and because of the way we do our marketing that traffic comes in large bursts rather than sustained over time. During one of our campaigns we had 22,000 connections inside just 10 seconds of our campaign page being live.
At nginx conf I will speak about just how we handle this type of traffic and how it’s different from more normal traffic patterns. If you’re attending stop by my talk on the 22nd at 11:45 am! If you don’t have a ticket yet it’s not too late! Until the 19th you can still register for the conference. (use the discount code SPEAKER25 for 25% off!)
Looking forward to hopefully seeing a bunch of you guys there!
