No Fluff Iowa - Day 3 (Selenium Rocks!!!)
Day 3 at No Fluff Just Stuff at the Central Iowa Symposium in Des Moines
was a great way to end (even though I didn’t win the Sony PSP). I started off the morning by
attending “Give the DB a Break! Peformance & Scalability” from Dion Almaer. Dion had some
awesome content in this session, and I was most interested in the caching architectures for
taking load off of our db. I’m very interested in Tangosol Coherence after he built it up so
much. Distributed cluster caching is something we must get deployed soon on our app.
That ended our weekend in Des Moines (after a quick Web Tier BOF with Neal Ford & Scott Davis). I would have attended Scott’s Testing the Web Tier sessions, but we had to get back to Omaha. I’ve talked a little to Jay Zimmerman, and hopefully they can bring NFJS to Omaha next year! Great conference, I totally recommend it to everyone, and I’ll be going again next year!
