Summary

Building infrastructure components was once the domain of only the very largest of internet operations like Google and Facebook. Increasingly though we see non-Google, non-infrastructure companies building their own infrastructure software. From his experience at Uber, Matt Ranney explores why the build or buy tradeoff is so difficult, and make some recommendations for both vendors and users.
