9780071843652: Web Scalability for Startup Engineers

This invaluable roadmap for startup engineers reveals how to successfully handle web application scalability challenges to meet increasing product and traffic demands.

Web Scalability for Startup Engineers shows engineers working at startups and small companies how to plan and implement a comprehensive scalability strategy. It presents broad and holistic view of infrastructure and architecture of a scalable web application. Successful startups often face the challenge of scalability, and the core concepts driving a scalable architecture are language and platform agnostic.

The book covers scalability of HTTP-based systems (websites, REST APIs, SaaS, and mobile application backends), starting with a high-level perspective before taking a deep dive into common challenges and issues. This approach builds a holistic view of the problem, helping you see the big picture, and then introduces different technologies and best practices for solving the problem at hand. The book is enriched with the author's real-world experience and expert advice, saving you precious time and effort by learning from others' mistakes and successes.

  • Language-agnostic approach addresses universally challenging concepts in Web development/scalability—does not require knowledge of a particular language
  • Fills the gap for engineers in startups and smaller companies who have limited means for getting to the next level in terms of accomplishing scalability
  • Strategies presented help to decrease time to market and increase the efficiency of web applications
