What to consider when starting development on a high-load system. The Top-10 mistakes made even before development starts.

According to statistics, at the beginning of 2010, there were around 43 million Internet-users in Russia--about 37% of the country’s population. The great potential of this market, as well as its rapid growth, has led many companies to hurriedly try to fill this niche by making web-projects that will “change the world”.
For a long time, the deterring factor for entering the web-app market was the difficulty of attracting an audience. After major social networks unveiled APIs for developing applications, the threshold for entering the market reduced to a minimum. Often, the efforts of only one developer are enough for an application to attract a million users. Farm Frenzy (Весёлый фермер), for example, has demonstrated that you can earn a fair amount of money in this market, which is why people have started investing in the creation of social network applications. A similar situation has been observed in other web-projects, which have nothing to do with social networks, but which are also meant for a wide audience.
The development of Internet systems has its own quirks. If projects are managed following the old tried-and-true methods, the results will most likely be unfavorable. Additionally, many mistakes are made because project managers are poorly oriented with the technology and try to control the developers in every possible way.
In this presentation, we will examine some of the most common mistakes, the majority of which are made before development begins, with real-world examples.
