Jose Roca (Prezi): Platform as a Service at Prezi
At Prezi we do not have a strict technology stack, each developer teams chooses their own. In fact, we are the land of the polyglots. This brings some interesting challenges for people to manage their own platform. To meet these challenges the Platform as a Service team have created a few tools and hacked others to make developers life easier when thinking about their systems. In this talk I will talk about our platform, the tools we use and how we integrate them to make Prezi work.
Jose is the tech lead manager for the PaaS team at Prezi. As a tool and backend developer he likes to automate everything, get the most performance possible out of things, monitor all moving parts, create graph art and run and learn complex system architectures. His main motivation is to automate his way out of a job.
David Dul (Prezi): Self-Service Email Platform
David will talk about how and why we built Prezi’s self-service email platform focused on internationalization, web content and email sending served by Django applications.
He will show how we built a scalable internationalization infrastructure in a few months that uses outsourced and crowdsourced translation of content and continuous testing and integration of new resources and translations. You will get an insight to the custom tools, localization formats, utility snippets, automation workflow and the integration with Transifex, a 3rd party translation workflow provider. Expect to hear about some architecture of queues and worker processes, continuous delivery, and some UI magic that lets non-developers manage most of the work.
David Dul currently works as the Technology Lead of the Online Marketing team and has worked in the past as a full stack web engineer in various teams in Prezi. He had key responsibility in building a scalable internationalization infrastructure across all products, and in building the tooling and infrastructure for keeping Prezi’s high-traffic email communication in hands.
