Scaling Pinterest AMA

#sxsw #PinAMA

Believe it or not, Pinterest is a whole lot more than just DIY and mason jars. There is some big technology being built behind a fast moving, and majorly scaling service.
Pinterest grew to billions of page views per month in just under a year. Here, Pinterest's first two engineers will give a short overview of the Pinterest architecture and the history behind it, and then open for questions. Come by and ask them anything!
