How to prepare the next app project for traffic of thousands of users?
So I am building a Front-end web-app (Angular4+) and converting it to a Mobile Application as well (both iOS and Android) using Ionic. This application is to be used on a specific day by maximum around 5000 users at an event. This application will dynamically call the API for some of its content (standard elements like top 10 users, some of the content, current event and playing).
So my question is, which techniques do I need to apply to support this huge number of users? The API will likely receive many calls, so I might have to cache a large number of this information (any good resources on caching). Any Back-end/Server-side techniques I need to apply as well? Things I need to watch out for when ordering a server to support this API?
Thank you for taking your time to read this question
