E-commerce and online transaction websites often organize events which involve millions of user visiting and using websites. To the outside world, this is just an event. Internally, however, these events involve massive preparations for the IT infrastructure to handle such loads and volumes. What does it take to be prepared? What are the common points of failure? What lessons can DevOps teams in other verticals learn?
On 8th November 2014, HasGeek and Flipkart have organized a mini Rootconf to understand these war stories.
Flipkart, 4th floor, Vaishnavi Summit Building, No. 6/B, 7th Main Road, 80ft Road, Koramangala, Bangalore - 560034
3 talks of 45 minutes each from DevOps practitioners in e-commerce on big events, mega traffic and IT infrastructure.
Individuals can also propose flash talks of 5 mins. Tell us about your favourite tool, innovation or DevOps tips and tricks.
In the afternoon, we have organized a four-hour workshop on SELinux.
This event is free to attend. Register here.

Architecting FreeCharge For Growth - 10X At A Time
Audience will gain insight into what does it take to build a highly scalable, secure transactional system and what are the pitfalls to avoid.
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.
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.
