Extending your application to the edge: best practices for using a CDN

In this talk, we'll discuss caching strategies when using CDNs. More specifically, we'll cover caching long tail content, caching fast-changing content, invalidation, stale and error conditions, and best ways to interact with a CDN when it comes to cached content. We'll use real-world examples to showcase new ways of using a CDN as a platform that extends applications to the network edge. We'll also discuss other values that a CDN provides and examine best practices for getting the most visibility and control over application traffic
