Building Real Web Sites

A session at Reflections | Projections 2013

Saturday 12th October, 2013

10:00am to 11:00am (CST)

An overview of how to build a web site that actually scales with both engineers and customers. Tulloss will go over the actual high level architectural decisions that should be made from the databases all the way to the user's interactions, plus diving into what the state of the art technologies are for doing this right now. He hopes for this to be filled with practical advice gained over 3.5 years at Rdio and 5 years talking to people in the bay area about how the most popular web sites on the internet are built.
