Building and hyperscaling in a fintech is not only possible, but more straightforward than you may think. Based on lessons from various companies, including Revolut and LMAX, we share examples and the dark sides of rapid-scaling.
It's going to be an opinionated story with a pinch of fun.
We will discuss:
- How to execute well and avoid wasting time
- Problems of scaling architecture and data systems
- Imposing (the right) constraints and restrictions
- Practical tips for increasing collaboration and ownership
Join us to transform your approach to evolving system architecture, leaving you with insights immediately applicable to your work.
