Rails Core Team Member and Unboxed CTO, Andrew White, is hosting our next meetup titled: ‘Andrew White’s Technical Breakfast Club: Scaling up Rails in a national referendum’ and we have some places left.

Date: Wednesday 31st August
Time: 09:30 – 10:30 (Breakfast from 09:00)
Location: Unboxed, 17 Blossom Street, London, E1 6PL

Andrew will share how a Rails application originally designed to process up to 12,000 signatures per hour coped with 150,000 – disproving the common misconception that “Rails can’t scale”. He will also be covering:
The background to the Petitions website and its design
Lessons learnt from previous popular petitions
Scaling your app when it receives unexpected demand
Lessons learnt from the 24th June and the following few days
Coping with fraud and bad actors

There will also be a Q&A session afterwards to get any questions out there.

(Unfortunately we won’t be able to record or live stream the session, but we will be doing a write up of it afterwards).

We hope you can make it.
