Case Study of the Flipkart Technology Stack for the Supplier Experience.
Deciding the technology stack for a new product is a crucial decision and often leads to fanatical views. The decision is in essence a function of the requirements of the domain. In this talk we will walk you through the entire process of how we transformed the decision making process from fanatical to analytical, from prejudices to rational from dogma to fit-for-purpose. In this discussion we shall discuss why Node.js was appropriate for Flipkart and also under what circumstances it may not be appropriate.
In this talk we shall also study this choice with a deeper look at the production ready open source modules available for node.js .
