NewStore Event Space, Schiffbauerdamm 22, Berlin
Welcome to the the fall edition of NewStore TechTalks!
Tonight we're flying in Tomas Della Vedova from Udine to answer the question whether HTTP can be fast. We promise you another interesting talk and high quality networking! Pizza & drinks will be provided.
A plain HTTP server can handle about 39k request per second, while Express and Hapi can serve respectively up to 21k and 6k request per second. About a year ago we started a journey with a goal in mind, build the fastest HTTP framework for Nodejs. So Fastify was born, and it can reach and surpass the crazy result of 34k requests per second. How can Fastify be so fast? In this talk we will analyze the tools and the techniques we used to optimize it, the cost of abstractions, optimizations and deoptimizations, and the libraries you can use to analyze your code. Furthermore we will discuss about some goodness we give to the user out of the box, such as a plugin system that handles encapsulation and inheritance, enabling a microservices ready ecosystem. What are you waiting? In the time you read this abstract we have already served one million requests!
