What are Expert Sessions?

With the launch of our book, High Performance Django, we’ve received a number of inquiries from people asking for advice, for which the answers are too specific to their application to give good general advice, and too short to sign a consulting engagement.

Rather than decline to help, we now offer Expert Sessions - a one-hour online consultation with a Lincoln Loop expert.

What can be covered in an hour consultation?

We’ve answered questions from companies including:

  • What technologies should we use for building a complex, high-performance application?
  • Our app is super complex and it takes us 3 days to onboard a new developer. How can we simplify things to speed up onboarding?
  • Should we move our infrastructure to Amazon Web Services or Heroku? What are the benefits and how do we perform the correct analysis?
  • How can we make our deploys more reliable?
  • How do we move from our legacy system to Django in order to improve reliability and cut costs?
  • Should we use MongoDB or Redis?
  • How do we properly load balance across our app servers?
  • How can we optimize our development workflow?

Whom will I be talking to in the consultation?

When you sign up for a session, please indicate the topic you’d like to discuss. Depending on the subject matter, we’ll pick the most appropriate person to provide you with the best consultation, or if you’d like to talk to a specific team member, please tell us that as well.
