More live examples and deeper explanations would've been nice. Reading to much the slides.

Good overview of unix tools at disposal for scaling. But no word on the application changes that must go with the use of those tools, so not very practical.

We learned we should use load balancers and CDNs to scale... yaaay. Not really a surprise. I guess I should have payed more attention to the «101» in the talk title but we were a lot to have been fooled. I guess it was okay for beginners.
