Scalable Web Architectures with Ruby and Amazon S3

I’m at barcamp bangalore 2 right now. What a crowd! Everyone has a wireless startup they’re working on with their friends: the tech entrepreneur scene is definitely heating up in India.
I gave a talk this morning about scalable web architectures. I focused on what we learned from building slideshare, including aspects specific to scaling Ruby on Rails. I also talked about Amazon S3, which I can’t say enough good things about. People thought that my slide on google ad words / Amazon cash flow was pretty funny.
Anyway, here’s the slides, plus a video snippet from the beginning of the presentation. Feel free to comment on individual slides on slideshare, and I’ll try to answer questions!
