Mid Tier Caching; When Every Day is a DoS

4th July 2018 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from Microservices July Meetup

Recently the BBC has rebuilt its media discovery API converting it from a monolith to micro services architecture. We will be discussing how we designed a micro service REST API with high load and performance in mind specifically, how do we use caching to ensure high traffic events do not take us offline.

Key takeaways: - Making micro service REST APIs resilient to transient load - Asynchronous cache refreshing – make sure your audience never wait for your database - Practical techniques you can employ to improve your cache hit ratio
