Presentation: "The evolving Guardian.co.uk architecture"
Time: Thursday 10:45 - 11:45
Location: Fleming Room
Guardian.co.uk has a long history of innovation that has enabled it to lead the market. The web site currently receives over 25 million unique users, 10 million in the UK alone, and 218 million page impressions a month.
In 2008, the development team completed a major programme of work to move the site onto a more modern platform. The "just in time" approach to architecture was very successful, introducing complexity into the architecture only when it is needed.
Mat Wall will be sharing his insights both on the guardian's fast-paced development process and their approach to platform architecture.
