On September 14, 2015, at the San Jose Convention Center, more than a thousand of engineers gathered to discuss building systems and applications for scale across three tracks: mobile, data and dev tools. Building applications or services that scale to millions or even billions of people presents a complex set of engineering challenges, many of them unprecedented. The @ Scale conference is focused on bringing people together to openly discuss these challenges and collaborate on the development of new solutions.
Engineers and technical leaders from more than 400 companies were represented. The speaker line-up included more than a dozen companies: Airbnb, Box, Facebook, GitHub, Google, Instagram, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Pinterest, Pixar Animation Studios, Twitter, Uber, and WhatsApp.
