Topic: Data Networking for Developers
With the emphasis on RESTful APIs and Service Oriented Architectures, it’s easy to forget the impact that network elements can have on application performance. In this talk, we will cover firewalls, load balancers, and caching from a network centric view. Then, we will cover how to map data flow throughout your application. We will follow that up with a discussion about how virtualization and storage can affect your application performance and how to account for it in your architectural design. Finally, we’ll investigate how to use New Relic for Application Performance Management, and Wireshark to make sure communications are occurring the way you expect them too.
