Are spiders eating your servers? The impact of their unexpected load and how to counter it

Charlie Arehart

For years I've watched people try to tame "server problems" with a focus on their code, their SQL, the jvm, and so on. Yet often it turns out that the root cause is actually unexpected load. And that load may be from things you never expected (automated), at volumes you never expected. I've found folks with as much as 80% of their web traffic to be such unexpected automated traffic!

Dependency Injection, why is it awesome and why should I care?

Nolan Erck

Dependency Injection is a very common pattern used in modern web development. It's not specific to Java or ColdFusion or JavaScript...but it's equally awesome in all of those! And in other languages too!
