Presentation: Google Docs - Architecting the World's Largest Realtime Collaboration System and Developer SDK


Day of week:

10:15am - 11:05am

Micah Lemonik of Google NYC will discuss the challenges of building behaviorally complex products and realtime state management systems at a global scale.

Learn about the architectural history of Google Docs and how we build the worlds largest real time collaboration platform and how we make that platform available to developers.

Some of the things covered:

  • Making realtime collaboration on any document type work 
  • Making a word processor and spreadsheet in a browser 
  • Building scalable distributed systems that need to support a large amount of object state and non-idempotent / non-commutative messaging
  • Architecting Google Drive's realtime SDK
