In this presentation filmed during QCon SF 2008, Jonathan Trevor presents two Yahoo! technologies: Pipes and Y! Query Language (YQL). Both technologies can be used to process data obtained from various sources, but while Pipes is limited to Yahoo web services, YQL can process many types of data.
In this presentation, Ian Flint, Director of Operations for Bix, Yahoo!’s online contest service, tries to explain the infrastructure and architecture employed by Yahoo! to keep going a multitude of servers running of different platforms and offering different services.
In this talk, recorded at QCon London, Mark Nottingham explains how Yahoo! leverages Web technologies, specifically HTTP-based caching using Squid, to create a high-performance architecture for integrating multiple Yahoo! properties, concluding that the Web provides sophisticated techniques without using SOA tooling such as ESBs.
