Aspen Smith is the dataflow tech lead at ReadySet. She spent the first decade of her career as a full-stack application and data pipeline engineer, where she developed a deep dissatisfaction with the current offerings in the database world, and passion for making the experience of using databases easier and more delightful for application engineers. She joined ReadySet in 2020 as the second full-time hire to make that vision a reality. In her spare time, Aspen likes to play music and ride bikes around Brooklyn, NY.

Scaling up Your Database With ReadySet
The database can be one of the hardest parts of a web app to scale. Many projects end up using ad-hoc caching systems that are complex, error-prone, and expensive to build. What if you could drop in a ready-built caching system to enable better throughput and latency with no code changes to your application?
Join developers Aspen Smith and Nick Marino to see how you can change one line of config in your app and use ReadySet to scale up your query performance by orders of magnitude today.
