Blake Crosby, CBC

Blake has been apart of the CBC team for over ten years working in the fast paced news and media environment. During this time he has kept one of Canada's most important websites available during major news events. His intimate knowledge of internet trends ensures that CBC stays ahead of the curve with emerging technologies.
Abstract: How does Canada's Public broadcaster deliver content to millions of users a day as efficiently as possible?

Network optimizations can only go so far.

This talk will touch upon the technologies, systems, and policies used at CBC to deliver high quality streaming audio, video, and web content as quickly and cheaply as possible to Canadians:

- Using CDNs to bring the content as close as possible to end users
- The nature of "news" generated network traffic and how to prepare for it.
- Why peering with CBC directly (or any news organization) might be a bad idea.
- Front End Optimizations (FEO) that are done to ensure minimal traffic/bw usage between end users and the origin.
- Caching and how to best take advantage of it.

This talk will give attendees a look at how a large news organization manages and deals with unpredictable network traffic at the application level.
