The Yammer Story

Matthew Whatshisname @mde

  • MSFT bought Yammer for $1.2B!! Node core to success
  • Started small. Wrote a build server/script in node
  • Step 2: file upload streaming. Similar to early experiences from Ryan
  • Step 3: build a developer website, connect to an API
  • The time taken to 'do it right' in any given platform, favours node
  • easy to do small iterations - minimum viable product at its minimal-est.
  • "We're rewriting everything with node!!!11!1!1one!1!2!!" - bad sign
