Stack Overflow behind the scenes - how it's made
Stack Overflow serves over 100 million unique visitors a month, serving a page in 20ms using 9 web servers and 2 database servers. In this talk I will cover how we develop, build, configure, deploy, monitor and maintain the site, as well as cover aspects of working in a team distributed around the world.
Oded has been a software engineer since 1997, most of which were spent working on web applications. A prolific contributor to Stack Overflow since its beta in 2008, he has answered thousands of questions on it, though since he joined the Stack Overflow team in 2013, he has been spending more time hacking Stack Overflow code than answering questions.
