Experiments in scalable architechtures.
I was reading a blog post the other day about how Tumblr was dealing with scaling to ridiculous levels of awesome. I'd been interested in how on earth Facebook works at the scale and speed it does for a while now and as such this project was made to try out different methods of implementing various features and architechtures present on their sites.
Some ideas for things I'm going to try and replicate are:
- Facebook Stream
- Facebook Messages
- Twitter Stream
- Tumblr Dashboard
