"How hosting design influences software design and vice versa" by Spike Ilacqua
Infrastructure and architecture design is one of the most important decisions to be made when building any website or app, yet it is often quickly overlooked by startups. In this talk, the founder of Indra's Net (a Boulder hosting company) gives examples of good and bad architecture decisions, along with sage advice about choosing your infrastructure. If you think the best option for your next website or app is to just put it up on Heroku and forget about it, you need to listen to this talk.

"How I built a side-project for pennies and got featured on Product Hunt without going down" by Matt Null
Recently Matt built gifyourface.com in a couple of hours, paid a few pennies for hosting, and got featured on ProductHunt. His little side project was upvoted 100+ times and had traffic from all over the world. Even with all of that traffic, Matt's little project never went down, took a couple of hours to set up, and cost him pennies. In this talk, Matt will share with you the architecture behind GifYourFace.com that allowed for the cheap uptime, his thought process behind those decisions, and advice for your own projects.
