Posted on Wednesday, Aug 17, 2022

Show Notes

#172: As a developer, we might think we know how our application is going to run in production. We know we’ll need a web server, an application server and a database. But what we might not know is how popular (or unpopular) our application is going to be and what the actual sizing is that we’ll need in order to optimally run our application.

In this episode, we speak with Maxim Melamedov from Zesty about the different models that need to be taken into account when not only designing and writing our applications but also operating them at scale.
