Presentation: TweetInside Lanyrd's Architecture
From humble beginnings on a Moroccan holiday in 2010, Lanyrd has gained complexity, many new features, and a lot of users. Learn how we grew our stack, the new technologies we tried (and sometimes ignored), some of the clever tricks you can pull as a content-heavy site, and some of the things we'd do differently if we could start afresh - as well as how a small team and rapid deployment helps us quickly adapt to any new problem we face.
