DETAILS
From unanticipated service failures to load-related performance degradations, infrastructure event readiness planning is critical for handling seasonal traffic spikes gracefully & dynamically. Without proper preparation, your best sales day could become your last.

Gain insights into how Elaine Arbaugh, Senior Software Engineer & SRE tech lead, at Affirm - a fintech startup, managed the massive influx of activity during the 2018 Thanksgiving & Cyber Monday shopping weekend by building a scale-up, fault tolerant, database system that was able to handle 5x a normal day's scale.

Elaine will provide a suggested infrastructure planning timeline for startups, discuss considerations you should start making now, share general design principles, & offer tips on how to recover in the event of a database system failure.

Drinks, food, & networking to follow.
