Heroku Performance Workshop @ RailsConf 2013
Heroku and Jumpstart Lab present an evening focused on Rails performance. We'll start with three short workshop sessions:
- Understanding Heroku's architecture and what it means for your application
- Optimizing database usage to reduce N+1 queries and lookup times
- Why and how to use Rails' new fragment caching tools ("Russian-Doll Caching")
After the workshops we'll have a contest to improve the performance of an existing Rails application, allowing you to put the techniques into action and see real results.
NOTE: Yes, bring your laptop and power adapter!
