Avoiding the fail whale
Catchy title? Its a webminar hosted by Robert Scoble, with panel members like Matt Mullenweg (WordPress – their extensive use of PHP, MySQL and more, and scalable even for wordpress.com), Paul Bucheit (FriendFeed, creator of GMail) and Nat Brown (iLike, a pretty popular Facebook application), you’d be silly not to miss it.
Its all about building a scalable server environment that grows with your traffic (virtually overnight, in some cases). I hope its all fairly generic and not Rackspace specific… we should learn to have these “fun” panel webminars.
