Objective

Audience will gain insight into what does it take to build a highly scalable, secure transactional system and what are the pitfalls to avoid.

Description

FreeCharge has grown more than 10x in terms of transaction volume over last one year. Even this growth has been exponential, most of which coming over last few months. In this session I talk about how we scaled our architecture to handle the volume, challenges we faced, trade offs we had to take without compromising on the beautiful and fast customer experience. This session is about our journey of 10X we embarked upon and the learnings we got out along the way.

Speaker bio

I head the backend infrastructure engineering team at FreeCharge; payments and recharge systems being my team’s primary focus. I’m one of the first few engineers of FreeCharge Bangalore development center and been with FreeCharge for more than two years.
