Track: Architectures You've Always Wondered About
Day of week:
Behind every successful tech company there is an architecture that enables them to function, innovate and scale. In this track, we hope to inspire you by bringing some of the top companies to share their decisions and challenges that have shaped their unique architectures and stories.
You will hear from companies that have scaled exponentially, have handled billions of transactions and millions of users, have built infrastructure platforms that empower companies like yours, and have impressively re implemented their infrastructure. We hope that by learning from their successes and mistakes you will be able to adopt some of these ideas into your own system and architecture, and ultimately get inspired.

If you are earlier along on your personal microservices journey than we are, then this talk may save you from having to learn some things learn the hard way.
