    Testing at Scale with Nate Lee, Co-Founder of SpeedScale

    Modern businesses rely on applications, and they rely on continued innovation in those applications to drive their business.
    This strive for innovation creates a need for improved techniques for validating that an application will work as expected. But constant innovation means a constant chance for problems, and testing applications at scale is not an easy task. This is where SpeedScale comes into play. SpeedScale assists in stress-testing applications by recreating real-world traffic loads in a test environment.

    MDB Weekly for Jan 2, 2023

    MDB Weekly for Jan 2, 2023

    Welcome to my first issue of Modern Digital Business Weekly! This is a new format that I’m experimenting with. MDB Weekly will focus on articles, interviews and events of note I’ve released this last week, along with any announcements of new courses and books I’ve released. Additionally, it will contain timely industry news and other information I think you may be interested in.
    My focus is to make this available in a variety of easy to consume formats. It’ll be available in written format as an article on my site along with a email newsletter. It’ll also be available in audio format on my Modern Digital Business podcast. You can read or listen in whatever format or location is easiest for you! If this is successful, I will experiment with other formats as well, including video.
    Each format will be the same content, optimized for that particular platform.
    This format, the audio podcast format, will be a weekly, very short episode on the Modern Digital Business podcast, released on Mondays.
    I hope you enjoy this new-for-2023 feature!
    Today on Modern Digital Business.

    And this means we need better tools to help us simplify our complex cloud infrastructure options.
    In this episode, I talk with Tim Holm, CTO of Nitric, a company that is trying to solve this exact problem.
