Switching addons.mozilla.org from CakePHP to Django

A session at DjangoCon US 2010

Tuesday 7th September, 2010

3:10pm to 3:50pm (PST)

In January of 2010 Mozilla started switching addons.mozilla.org (AMO) from CakePHP to Django. We see about 120 million web requests per month and 1.4 million visitors per day. This talk will be a case study of scaling and deploying a large website (and getting faster than PHP) with MySQL, memcached, virtualenv, Celery, Hudson, Redis, MongoDB, and more.
