How a Small Team Scales Instagram
Location:Grand Ballroom AAbstract:
Instagram's infrastructure scaled to 30 million active users with a team of two infra engineers, and 150 million active users with a team of 10. Now that we have a chance to take a (quick) breath, we'll reflect on the architecture the service has evolved through in the last three years.
Mike Krieger, technical co-founder of Instagram, will present the session, and will unwrap Instagram's best and worst infrastructure decisions. We'll also break down how we build and deploy services that have let us scale to ever-growing demand and continue to add capabilities without slowing down our team.
