We’re planning to put a CDN out in front of our web application at work for well known, good reasons (performance, security, availability, etc). Here’s a tech talk from AWS about how Cloudfront works:
Such a great talk. “Don’t think because you have an alert for something that you’re protected.” “The more alerts you have, the more information overload you may have for the operator.”
- Respect distributed systems
- Debuggability in production
- Debugging == new knowledge about the way a system works
This may very well be my favourite conference talk ever. So many big ideas presented in 1.5 hours and articulated well and with enthusiasm!
