— IT-focused large scaled Startups give insights into their architecture —
At the 68th Webmontag, 3 Berlin based Techstartups are going to talk about their IT-architecture and -infrastructure with which they handle millions of visits/request.
The speakers will not only outline the current state of their systems, but will also talk about their learnings and the evolution from the first visitor till today.
Even though this Webmontag will be much more tech-focused then the recent ones, it won‘t be a “nerd-only”. So everyone else (business, marketing, etc etc ) feel free to come over and get an idea what it takes to build and run large scale applications.
So who will be up on stage?
- Bastian Hoffmann (Developer at ResearchGate),
- Francis Varga (Developer at Crowdpark),
- Knut Nesheim (Developer at Wooga),

He is also a frequent speaker on international web technology conferences, always trying to promote open standards and protocols. This, together with his activity in the OpenSocial foundation and as a committer and PMC member for the Apache Shindig project makes him a strong advocate for the vision of an truly open and distributed social web.
