Fly.io: Geographic App Deployment with Kurt Mackey

Latency is the time it takes to get from point A to point B. In programming, this might be the time from a user selecting their photos library to the pictures reaching their computer screen from the database. 

Fly.io is a simple platform for running full-stack apps and databases close to your users. Some available features include provisioning CPU, memory and storage based on your app’s demand, zero-configuration private networking and global load balancing, metrics and alerting, and managing SSL certificates at any scale. Fly.io beta is launching highly available PostgreSQL clusters with a single command and creating read replicas in different cities.

In this episode, we talk with Kurt Mackey, Social Media Manager at Fly.io.
