Description


Design and build scalable web applications quickly

This is an invaluable roadmap for meeting the rapid demand to deliver scalable applications in a startup environment. With a focus on core concepts and best practices rather than on individual languages, platforms, or technologies, Web Scalability for Startup Engineers describes how infrastructure and software architecture work together to support a scalable environment.

You'll learn, step by step, how scalable systems work and how to solve common challenges. Helpful diagrams are included throughout, and real-world examples illustrate the concepts presented. Even if you have limited time and resources, you can successfully develop and deliver robust, scalable web applications with help from this practical guide.

  • Learn the key principles of good software design required for scalable systems
  • Build the front-end layer to sustain the highest levels of concurrency and request rates
  • Design and develop web services, including REST-ful APIs
  • Enable a horizontally scalable data layer
  • Implement caching best practices
  • Leverage asynchronous processing, messaging, and event-driven architecture
  • Structure, index, and store data for optimized search
  • Explore other aspects of scalability, such as automation, project management, and agile teams
