Real-time systems at Twitter

A session at Velocity 2012

Tuesday 26th June, 2012

1:45pm to 2:25pm (PST)

Our talk covers the migration of the Twitter architecture from primarily Ruby on Rails (RoR) to a JVM-based SOA system with emphasis on high performance, scalability, and resilience to failure. General lessons include the advantages of asynchronous, real-time architectures over synchronous, process / thread-oriented systems, as well as caching and data store
