Facebook Architecture @ QCon Next Month: Infrastructure, HTML5, NoSQL, OO Design
From Palo Alto to London, next month’s QCon London will feature four of Facebook’s finest engineers, joining another 100 speakers at this 4th annual event. The Facebook talks this year include:
- Design in the face of scale and change. In the Design and Objects 2011 track, Nick Schrock talks about the internal programming abstractions Facebook developed to make their engineering organization more productive and less error-prone.
- HTML5 @ Facebook - Part of the HTML "HTML5, the Platform" track, David Recordon explores the why and how behind Facebook's adoption of HTML5 technologies.
- Scaling the Social Graph: Infrastructure at Facebook. Jason Sobel presents FB's infrastructure evolution from the early days of Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP to our more recent contributions like HipHop for PHP. This talk attracted half of the conference at the last QConSF, and is part of the architectures you've always wondered about track that also includes talks from Twitter, OnLive, and Visa.
- HBase @ Facebook. QCon features a NoSQL track including talks from guardian.co.uk, Nokia, and others. In this talk from Facebook, Kannan Muthukkaruppan talks about the use of HBase for Facebook Messages
