About the event

Stack Overflow serves more than six hundred million page views every month from 9 servers without cache. What is its secret? To have extremely efficient code.

You’re invited to find out how, on February 12th in San Giovanni Lupatoto, Italy.

Marco Cecconi, an Engineering Manager at Toptal, will share how a particularly complex feature, the tag engine, was optimized over time, starting from SQL and arriving to massively parallel code running on CUDA GPUs.

The event will take place at AQuest, starting at 7 PM. For more information on the event, please visit the event website.

AQuest, Via Dott. F. Garofoli, 233, San Giovanni Lupatoto, Italy
