As Twitter continues to expand internationally, our engineering teams are growing around the world. We recently held two #ScalingTwitter tech talks in our Dublin and London engineering hubs to highlight the work of these teams, the unique challenges of operating at scale and how Twitter is addressing these issues.
Over 100 guests attended these events that featured a series of lightning tech talks from some of our most senior engineers across the company. Sharon Ly, Lucy Cunningham and Esteban Kuber showcased the technology stack required to process our traffic volume while K.G. Nesbit discussed the evolution of the Twitter network. In addition, Andy Hume, Harry Kantas and Lukasz Szemis presented on using tooling to measure and manage both infrastructure and software at scale.
The #ScalingTwitter discussions in Dublin and London were our first engineering focused events, as well as our first WomEng hosted event, outside of the U.S. They provided a fantastic opportunity to bring engineers together who are passionate about leveraging technology to face the challenges of operating at global scale.
