Understand and learn about scaling of systems.
If deploying applications efficiently at scale is not challenging enough, technology organizations today are expected to cater to exponential growth and unplanned surges from get go. At Snapdeal and Freecharge, we face and overcome many such challenges on a daily basis. In this talk we would share some insights into our massive deployment scale and take you through one such journey of hell and back by the freecharge team. We found some technical nuggets during our battles and we are channeling them into building a Hybrid cloud platform that would apply these learnings and offer new paradigms of developing and deploying applications of such scale.
