Building a server environment that’s scalable and reliable can be tough, especially when your traffic goes “nuts” virtually overnight. Fast Company Live presents a special one-hour live webinar, moderated by Robert Scoble and featuring a panel of tech leaders from companies big to small who are facing these very issues.
Confirmed guests include:
- Matt Mullenweg: Founder of Automattic, the company behind WordPress.
- Paul Bucheit: One of the founders of FriendFeed and the creator of Gmail.
- Nat Brown: CTO of iLike, a music community service that had one of the first Facebook apps.
The discussion will cover architectural choices, growth hurdles and how the panelists overcame them. The first half-hour will be devoted to the panel discussion, while the second half-hour will be open to live questions from registered webinar attendees.
