  • Creating Facebook Apps in the Cloud

    by Kirsten Jones

    Facebook apps can now be made using cloud providers such as PHP Fog and Heroku. How can you get set up on these systems and create applications to use with Facebook? This talk will discuss getting started in each system and creating a very simple Facebook application – we’ll go over the code examples and demonstrate basic functionality. If you’re familiar with developing for Facebook, this talk will show you how to deploy those apps to the cloud. If you haven’t built any Facebook applications yet, this will get you started on that path.

  • Scaling Your Development Team

    by Scott MacVicar

    10 people working on a single code base can be considered high, but what about 800 people?
    At Facebook, code is pushed 5 times a week to over 800 million people. The small amount of downtime is due to the practices of our engineering team and the process used to do a release.

    Scott’s talk is going to cover everything that goes into the development of a feature at Facebook and how that code is pushed. He will try to cover as much as possible about the underlying technology stack and the open source software they use and release to make it all happen.

    At 4:00pm to 5:00pm, Thursday 24th May
