What Your CDN Won’t Tell You: Optimizing a News Website for Speed and Stability

I was recently in San Diego giving a talk at LISA ’12 entitled “What Your CDN Won’t Tell You: Optimizing a News Website for Speed and Stability“. The paper was based on work my colleague Blake Crosby and I did at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to rearchitect their website & integrate it successfully with Akamai‘s EdgeSuite content delivery network, enabling it to serve over a million unique visitors daily with high availability.

I’m pleased to announce that the slides from the presentation are now available, and the video (eek!) will be shortly.

Hope everyone’s having a great holiday and I promise there will be more blog posts in the New Year.
