Earlier this year I released a series of screencasts showing that rails indeed comes with many of the tools that you need scale your rails app. Since then more Rails applications have gone into production, additional techniques have been developed for optimizing performance, and more open source libraries have been published. In this talk I will first give a quick introduction for those just getting their feet wet with optimizing Rails applications. However, the majority of the talk will be spent looking at the most useful techniques for optimizations and some of the new libraries that have been released to make it that much easier.
