Two words - web application.

The future of web lies in the browser. That's what Google said at Google I/O 2011. And thats what Mariusz proved with his presentation.

I was among people who doesn't understand why node.js is intresting solution for building web app. Really, javascript on backend? Seriously??

What I saw and heard, changing my all thinking. JS may have it's momentum, but what Mariusz presented was an actually web app in the browser. And it made sense. Some may say, it's not for massive solution, but there are areas where you don't need to use massive and scalable applications. Sometimes you need a thing that fits in your browser, that is fast and easy to use.

Plus it's well engineered. First thing I did after this presentation was to find everything on web Mariusz talked about to know more, more more :)

Great job Mariusz, and great presentation.

Another great presentation of Mariusz.

Most people don't even realize how to scale their applications. The simplest solution is put load balancer and expand the cluster. Sometimes, there are much simpler and cheaper solution. You just need to know what you can use.

Varnish is one of those simple but powerful things. Mariusz not only talked what Varnish is, but actually where it can help you.

All I can say is, that our devops were pointed at Varnish after this presentation and probably we're gonna deploy it soon :)

Thank you Mariusz.

My idea was to show what to use geoindexing for, what are the issues related to that, how MongoDB solves them, and then demo how to use it in your projects. Apparently I didn't communicate that well enough, sorry for that.
About the demo - yes, I'm sorry for that too, my laptop had technical issues and after reboot of VM mongo decided that dataset is too large for 32bit system. I fixed it and presented the next day though.

This was really good presentation. Mariusz as a true professional gave us problem and solution. With good arguments he nailed every single problem you may get, when you try run high traffic site on MySQL.

My only regret was that every session was limited to 45 minutes. I'd love to see this man talk for couple hours :)

No, he is not ninja. He is young man passionate about node.js and not giving any shit about other technologies :)

Topic was interesting, but I'd see live examples showing true power of node.js instead of advertising of nodejitsu.

Really good presentation. Flilip made it very simple and talked about things that matters in development of massive web applications. I only regret it was so short.

The whole thing left me with more questions than answers. I'd want to sit with Filip for couple days and talk about technical stuff and learn from his experience. Well, for now I'm happy he pointed me at some really intresting topic and technology. Thank you.

One word - AMAZING!

Miloslav gave us really awesome presentation. I made huge eyes, when he explained what Phalanger is - this cannot work even if it works, performance and developing are probably not so good.

The truth is - both things were solved by Devsense. Compiled PHP scripts works really fast, plus you can easly enhance them with .NET code. Thats really amazing thing! Plus, PHP Tools for Visual Studio really blows competition away!

Keep this up Miloslaw! I can wait to see what you guys will do in future.

I think Michal nailed his topic. There was introduction to the problem and where it may occur. And there was presented solution for that with all it's advatanges and limits.

I didn't recieved this as Microsoft sales presentation. Actually it was really intresting to see how Windows Azure works and how it may fit in our business to help us grow.

I'll try to write a blog post about static content and problems. I"ll try to write some more logical arguments about why something is awesome and why something is boring.
Hopefully other presentations were much better and the organization of conferrence was also ok.

Oh and next time please give your name/twitter login. Anonymous is kind of lame ;)

Actually, it was fun presentation, that has no information behind it.

IMO there was too much offtopic distraction and not enough talk about actually problems you may get when trying to do geospatial indexing. Plus, the presentation lacked any plan, how to approach the topic and what to discuss/talk about. It was about - how the search in Google Maps work thing, with poor examples that actually didnt worked :/
