Pokemon Go Performance Issues - Gotta Catch Them All

Pokemon Go has stormed onto the scene this past week and the buzz is everywhere about it! However, being so successful in such a brief period of time can have a downside. Reports of players being unable to access services started appearing in relatively short order. Amazon's CTO jumped into the fray offering their cloud services to help scale NiantecLab's (creators of Pokemon Go) server-side infrastructure. While the Pokemon Go app has been positively rated by the majority of players, there are clearly a large number of players who thought differently, as indicated in the Google play App ratings.

We had a look at how Pokemon's website has been keeping up with the influx of traffic, and created a Pokemon Performance Dashboard.

The two things that really stand out here; the amount of data being transferred every time the page is loaded (over 6 megabytes), and the amount of time taken waiting for the server to respond to requests.

A quick look in a browser developer tool at how the page is loaded illustrates the complexity of the page and how the initial server wait for a couple of blocking javascripts slows down the rest of the page load.

A quick look at Google Page Speed highlights several areas that could be improved through some design changes.

Design alone is not the issue here, because there are long server-side response times slowing the site. Note this view is specifically for the Pokemon site, and not the Pokemon Go app, which would use different web services and APIs to communicate between the mobile app and servers.

This sixteen (16) hour course provides an introduction to DevOps, the cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration, integration and automation in order to improve the flow of work between software developers and IT operations professionals. Improved workflows will result in an improved ability to design, develop, deploy and operate software and services faster.
This is going to be a live demo on a production ready CICD pipeline which automate the deployment of application onto AWS ECS and Fargate. The same pipeline will automate deployment into various environment such as Test, UAT, and Prod. The pipeline will go through various stages such as source, build, test, approval, UAT stage, Prod stage. The demo will utilize only AWS services including AWS CodeCommit, Codebuild, code pipeline, Elastic container service (ECS), ECR, and Fargate.
Digital transformation is about embracing digital technologies into a company's culture to better connect with its customers, automate processes, create better tools, enter new markets, etc. Such a transformation requires continuous orchestration across teams and an environment based on open collaboration and daily experiments. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Alex Casalboni, Technical (Cloud) Evangelist at Cloud Academy, explored and discussed the most urgent unsolved challenges to achieve full cloud literacy in the enterprise world.
CloudEXPO | DevOpsSUMMIT | DXWorldEXPO Silicon Valley 2019 will cover all of these tools, with the most comprehensive program and with 222 rockstar speakers throughout our industry presenting 22 Keynotes and General Sessions, 250 Breakout Sessions along 10 Tracks, as well as our signature Power Panels. Our Expo Floor will bring together the leading global 200 companies throughout the world of Cloud Computing, DevOps, IoT, Smart Cities, FinTech, Digital Transformation, and all they entail. As your enterprise creates a vision and strategy that enables you to create your own unique, long-term success, learning about all the technologies involved is essential. Companies today not only form multi-cloud and hybrid cloud architectures, but create them with built-in cognitive capabilities.
In today's always-on world, customer expectations have changed. Competitive differentiation is delivered through rapid software innovations, the ability to respond to issues quickly and by releasing high-quality code with minimal interruptions. DevOps isn't some far off goal; it's methodologies and practices are a response to this demand. The demand to go faster. The demand for more uptime. The demand to innovate. In this keynote, we will cover the Nutanix Developer Stack. Built from the foundation of software-defined infrastructure, Nutanix has rapidly expanded into full application lifecycle management across any infrastructure or cloud .Join us as we delve into how the Nutanix Developer Stack makes it easy to build hybrid cloud applications by weaving DBaaS, micro segmentation, event driven lifecycle operations, and both financial and cloud governance together into a single unified st...
