This book is a front-to-back look at Web 2.0 applications, focusing on architecture and implementation. Using Ajax for web sites is all the rage, but they lack a scalable architecture. Readers will learn how to take what some refer to as the "poor man's web technologies" - Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP or other scripting languages - and scale them to compete with established "store bought" enterprise web technologies. The author led the Flickr software development team and uses real world examples to explain how to design and build Ajax-style client-like applications on the Web with XMLHttpRequest - without compromising web site performance. "Building Scalable Web Sites" goes beyond the standard Ajax tricks and explains how to realise the cost and performance benefits of asynchronous XML communication. The book details proven methods for scaling Web 2.0 applications to millions of users.
