VIDEO: Building Distributed Architectures at the Edge

September 5, 2019 · by Javier Garza ·

I wanted to share a video of a talk I gave at a recent LinkedIn Performance Engineering Meetup. In this talk—which builds on Akamai CEO Tom Leighton's keynote at a recent conference—I discuss the "capacity imbalance" on the Internet and some of the things you can do to ensure your sites and apps will be always fast and secure even with this imbalance.

You can watch the full talk here (a link to the slides shown in the video is included below):
