The Modern, Responsive Web Site

The Modern, Responsive Web Site

More and more use is being made of cell phones for web exploration at the expense of conventional desk and laptop PCs. The modern web has to accommodate all these many screen sizes from High definition PC screens through iPads to miniature cell phone and maybe even smaller? This presentation will give many outward examples of valid web sites and discuss internal coding techniques.

Can your app handle an appearance on the front page of TechCrunch? In this talk, we’ll compare common design patterns and strategies for building software that can scale to millions of users and beyond, such as concurrency, caching, CDNs, compression, immutability, sharding, partial ordering, and read optimization. We’ll discuss why the REST paradigm has become such a natural fit for building web and app backend services, as well as how to test your app for scalability so you can be confident that it will survive an unexpected spike in traffic.

Michael Barnathan is a Director of Engineering at Amplify Access, which deploys educational tablets to K-12 schools across the country. Prior to joining Amplify, Michael founded Clipless, the first contextual deals startup, which survived two appearances on the front page of TechCrunch, gained massive traction in a short period of time, and was acquired 8 months from founding. Michael’s prior experience also includes a Senior Software Engineer position at Google, where he worked on their build pipeline, creating software to compile millions of lines of source code in under 1 second. He holds a Ph. D. in machine learning from Temple University, with a particular emphasis on using computer vision techniques to automatically diagnose medical scans. In his spare time, Michael enjoys genetic engineering, piano, and composition.
