  1. Heroku Autoscaling | Software Engineering Daily

    When an application is using all of its available resources, that application needs to be scaled. Scaling an application means giving it more resources–typically servers. Autoscaling is an engineering practice where an application is automatically given more or less resources based on how healthy the application performance is at a given time.

    Applications on Heroku have access to autoscaling. Heroku users don’t need to worry about provisioning new servers manually because the platform does it for them. In this episode, we explore how Heroku built autoscaling.

    Andrew Gwozdziewycz [@apgwoz] is an operational experience engineer with Heroku. As he describes, autoscaling requires frequent health checks of an application. Since thousands of applications are running on Heroku, a metrics pipeline using Kafka and Cassandra supports the high volume of health check data. That data feeds into the decision process for when an application needs to scale.

    Full disclosure: Heroku is a sponsor of Software Engineering Daily.

  5. Not Playing | Dude, Where’s My Scarface? (Episode 2.12)

    Special guest John Siracusa takes time out of his busy operating-system review schedule to join Lex and Dan for Not Playing’s season two finale. Neither John nor your regular hosts had ever seen Scarface. We fixed that.

    Of course, Siracusa’s known for being hypercritical. Will Oliver Stone’s script, Brian De Palma’s directing, and Al Pacino’s acting be enough to impress him, or will Scarface need to say hello to John’s little friend: grudging disdain?

    Hot topics include what makes a gangster movie successful, random characters who suddenly become the center of attention during the climactic conclusion, and man, is Michelle Pfeiffer beautiful.

    Want to support the show? You can stream along from Amazon and give us a kickback at the same time, or if you prefer iTunes, we roll that way too.

    You may be wondering when season three of Not Playing will kick off. We’re wondering that, too, and we’ll decide soon! Stay tuned to the site and our Twitter feed for more info.
