As in any other field, for a win, we should take a look at the successful stories and case studies around us. In this article I would like to talk about optimization, speed up and handling with success big amount of traffic and lots of database queries. How many times have you bought a domain name, a hosting and started a website with the hope that your idea will rock? I did it few times without real success. Now the question is WHY? Supposing you want to start a social website/app, it’s not enough to code the whole thing and turn it on! Imagine that your website can go viral in few hours and your code will not be enough to handle a big amount of traffic. The whole system will crash and you will have to re-work it, and this will take enough time to lose your user’s interest and it will be hard to get them back at your second start.
