Presentation: "Agility in eBay"

Time: Thursday 15:35 - 16:35

Location: Concordia

Abstract: Over the past 15 years, eBay grew to become the world's largest online marketplace with more than 94 million globally active users. With more than $62 billion worth of goods sold annually ($2000 per second), product stability was prioritized to ensure flawless customer experience. Over the past few years the evolution in customer needs has necessitated eBay to prioritize agility over stability. This change in prioritization of business quality attributes has required changes in the overall architecture and development process. In this session, you will learn the main architectural principles and tradeoffs, as well as practices that enables a business like eBay to become more agile, in order to meet the ever evolving needs of its customers.
