7:45 Talk: Groupon and Scaling Development
Groupon and Scaling Development
Groupon's Director of Engineering, Ivan Moscoso, will be providing an in-depth presentation on the "gaps" Groupon had to cross as they went from a Ruby team of 3-4 people to an at-scale team of several hundred developers -- all the while addressing rapidly expanding system needs and massive traffic volumes.
Ivan will cover both the architectural gaps and the people/process gaps they had to overcome. It's a comprehensive talk that should be of interest to any developer who wants to learn the tools and approaches to address things that scale.
Director of Engineering, Groupon
Ivan has worked at several startups and consulting companies before joining Groupon in 2009, where he is Director of Engineering. He has worked on everything from scheduling algorithms to iOS apps, and is a big believer in software development as a team sport. He holds degrees in Computer Science and Writing. His hobbies include photography, iOS programming, and drinking anything with bourbon in it.
