Our second day at Velocity Europe, which is really the first official day, has wrapped up and we wanted to give you a glimpse of what happened. Although much of this we have already reported on Facebook and Twitter, we still wanted to collect it in one place.
Girish Patangay of Facebook gave a talk about how the social network ships code and ships it fast. Soon, he revealed, Facebook will update its sites twice per day, not a small feat with close to 1 billion users.
Ilya Grigorik from Google talked about Google Chrome Dev Tools and previewed another session, which was to follow later in the day.
Mike Krieger, co-founder of Instagram, took the Velocity audience on a wild ride through how the social photo sharing app has managed scaling from its humble origins on a single server to now being a part of Facebook.
The first annual state of the union for mobile ecommerce performance was presented by Joshua Bixby of Strangeloop.
We took some time today to walk around the exhibitor’s area and we stopped by O’Reilly and Google to name a few.
That’s a quick wrap-up of our second day at Velocity Europe and only a small sample of everything that went on. Tomorrow Velocity concludes with, we hope, a string of new and exciting sessions.
As always, we’d love to have a chat with you if you’re around Velocity. Look for us in the yellow or black Pingdom shirts
