At we have a zoo of microservices, interaction between them is obviously carried out through REST APIs. Our www microservice, aka frontend, is an isomorphic/universal JavaScript application bounded between users and the zoo, lots of 1:n HTTP requests there. Taming this type of Node.js application in production to survive traffic spikes and other wild behaviors brought us to deeply understand Node.js non-blocking model: it's too easy to react to problems with CDN and infamous memory/thread allocations. Node.js non-blocking model comes with simplicity in mind. In many cases this simplicity allows you to build apps quickly. But when you reach the edge, simplicity means responsibility. Let's dive in!

Not really understood what I could learn from the cases i've heard except the HEAD one


I think this talk was the best!! 6 stars to it!!
He tried to explain a complex and not so well known aspect of node.
Surely the slides could be customized but the content of this talk and the results show was amazing!

I'm sorry but I can not give this talk a passing grade because of the not-so-good presentation: it was hard for me to follow the speech given the sub-par english and the topic was too much focused on a very specific use-case.

The topic very interesting, but very difficult to follow the slides and speech flow.
I suggest reviewing the talk.

Very interesting talk, but I suggest to the speaker to review his presentation for give it a more simple and continuous flow. Jump from a presentation to another results difficult sometimes.

It was interesting, but I've found some difficulties to understand everything

Interesting talk, but poor english; sometimes it was hard to follow

Very very interesting

Interesting talk, but exposure and English should be improved
