With Giancarlo Silvestrin

Play

Abstract

This session will focus on Gilt's implementation of Play Framework across its architecture--starting with Gilt Live, a real-time page showcasing purchases made in real-time, and eventually branching out to many critical parts of the company's tech organization (from search to inventory status updates). Play has offered Gilt numerous advantages in terms of accessibility, scalability and performance. You'll hear more about lessons learned and the many advantages Play has offered to Gilt, a rapidly-moving eCommerce company with more than eight million users.
