COLUMBIA, Md., June 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The first annual Surge Scalability and Performance Conference has announced that early-bird registration is now open for its multi-track sessions on how to build scalable systems, to be held September 30-October 1 at the Tremont Grand in Baltimore, MD.

Surge 2010, supported by the industry's leading architects and sponsors involved in scalability and performance engineering, will offer an unrivaled, highly productive conference experience at cost-effective rates. The best lessons come from failure, but they don't have to happen at your expense. Listen to experts describe their challenges and how their real-world solutions can be applied to your architecture.

With a recent poll stating 88 percent of consumers are unlikely to return to a particular website if they have previously had a bad experience using it, you cannot afford poor Web performance.

Theo Schlossnagle, Surge 2010's organizer, said, "Surge is more than an event; it's a chance to identify emerging trends and meet the architects behind established technologies. Learn from their mistakes and see how their victories can power your business forward."

"This conference will be the most important gathering of scalability innovators we've ever assembled, and we're happy to open registration today for this major event at early-bird discount rates," Schlossnagle added.

  • John Allspaw, VP of Technical Operations,
