Problem 1 While AJAX is a good first step, we must consider performance of our AJAX requests. I will show you how to use caching strategies that are compatible with all browsers and environments. I will also show you how to setup background jobs to quickly process the AJAX request.
Problem 2 Some code will always run slow. I will show you how to solve the problem by not solving the problem. In stead of focusing on the individual job itself, we will look at how to leverage a whole host of cloud nodes to execute our jobs. I will provide real world example (stuff we run into at Heroku).
My educational background consists of Computer Science and Mathematics. I have contributed to projects like: ActiveMerchant, Gemcutter and others. These days I am crafting code on the API Team at Heroku. Each day I am solving problems using parallel algorithms and cloud infrastructure. I believe this to be a fundamental concept in modern web development and thus I have a passion for teaching other developers how to best apply this concept.
