One of the best things about tech is the sheer number of people who just want to build things, and build them well. This means that there's a lot of sharing in the tech world — we share how we're building with new technologies, how we redesign our products, how we structure our teams.
In Boston alone, there are a number of software companies building really cool products. So we decided to design a night for engineers all over Boston to learn how teams build reliable, scalable software for diverse workloads and environments. And who better to partner with than Wayfair, who builds ecommerce software, and Toast, who makes point-of-sale and management software for restaurants. In aggregate, Wayfair, Toast, and HubSpot touch millions of customers, and on that journey, we've all had unique scaling challenges.
If you'd like to share in a little of that learning, we've posted the slides from our three speakers below.
Adam Baratz, Director of Engineering at Wayfair
Andrew Yoon, Senior Software Engineer at Toast
Jacob Hilker, Senior Software Engineer at HubSpot
