StubHub: Designing for Scale and Innovation for the World’s Largest Ticket Marketplace



Charlie Fineman presents the scalability challenges and solutions implemented for the largest online ticket marketplace.


Charlie Fineman runs the architecture group at StubHub where he’s been for the past 6 years. Charlie has always been fascinated by tools, languages, and system software… especially in support of the construction of parallel and distributed software. Only after stints at his university, NASA Ames, and Sun Microsystems did he finally try his hand at building actual applications for end users.
