@Scale 2014: Recap of Data Track

Posted about 3 years ago
blog post · Data · Infra · Mobile · Caching · Testing · @Scale

Facebook started the @Scale conference series as a forum for engineers to share how they solve problems in the real world. It's since evolved and grown to become a community that collaborates in the open in order to innovate further, faster, and more effectively. We saw this firsthand during the web track sessions of @Scale, where companies at all stages of growth — Wikimedia, Twitter, Khan Academy, Google, and Netflix — are pushing the boundaries of what we thought was possible in web development. For many of these teams, they're also contributing those technologies back to the open source community, ensuring that others can learn and benefit from these lessons. Read more...
