Together with mCASH we plan to have a Meet Up on the 5th of April. We plan for 3 speeches and maybe some lightning talks. It's up to you :-) Do not hesitate to contact us if you have something on your mind, something cool you have been working.

1st talk:

Dag Sverre Seljebotn from mCASH will talk about the mCASH backend and how we use Google App Engine:

• How App Engine and the NoSQL Google data store works, and examples of the async framework that was written by Guido van Rossum

• Advantages and disadvantages seen in App Engine after 2 years of use in production

• Sharding techniques used to overcome the limitations of Google Data Store

• Experiences with payments handling and primarily storing immutable events instead of mutable state to database

2nd talk:

Christian Mikalsen from kolonial.no will talk about how they built a robust and scalable logistics plattform.

Kolonial.no is a startup founded three years ago by a young and tech-savvy team, and has quickly grown to become Norway's largest online grocer. They will talk about their startup journey, and how they have built and scaled a user friendly website and a fully integrated logistics platform using Python and Django, all developed in-house by a very small team of engineers."
