Approaches to application request throttling

English session - Intermediate

In this talk, we’ll explore the simple yet complex realm of rate limiting. We’ll go over how to decide on which resources to limit, what the limits should be and where to enforce these limits – in our app, on the server, using a reverse proxy like Nginx or even an external service like CloudFlare or Azure API management. The takeaway? Know when and where to enforce rate limits so you can have both a happy application as well as happy customers.

Building an IDE with microservices - The innards of Rider

We’ll explore how things are wired together. Let’s geek out!
