Architecture at Uber – An inside look at the technology – 25/6-2014

It is with pleasure that DSAU and Uber invites you to a Techtalk about the technologies they use to handle the large amounts of data, and fast growth, they have had.
This year Uber opened a development office in Aarhus, and want to promote the company among Computer Science students at Aarhus University.


25/6-215:05014 kl. 14:00-16:00
Peter Bøgh Andersen Auditoriet
Finlandsgade 23, Aarhus N

There will be served beer, cake, soda and coffee.

Registration (free) takes place here.


Here is what Uber say about the talk:

This talk will dive into some of the exciting technical challenges in operating a 24×7 worldwide no-downtime system with real-time requirements, massive traffic, astronomical growth, and continuous deployment of new software features. In particular, we will focus on backend scaling challenges, e.g., high availability and throughput in a multi-datacenter scenario, similar to those faced by Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. We apply techniques such as schemaless databases, dynamic sharding, asynchronous loosely coupled software services, and clustered job queuing and event message systems to accommodate these challenges.
