|Hey fellow hackers,|
I am a programmer, but most of my work doesn't involve the web. The most I have done with web design is an EC2 instance running a LAMP stack. I am working on a project right now, but my concern is that I am limited by my 1 server experience? I know the gist of scaling, (traffic routing, memcaching, sharding) but I don't really know how to go about setting it up. How do you even predict if you need to scale like that? Can scaling be done in a modular fashion? I want to learn about web scale :) Any pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. If you could mention the full stack solution and not just one or two technologies that would be good.
Thanks in advance!
