AppNexus Engineering@Scale Series: Kickoff Event Jan. 30

Leave a comment

Join us January 30 for our Engineering @ Scale speaker series kickoff event. Our first talk will be “Rapid Iteration With Python: Scaling AppNexus” presented by Optimization and Analytics Director Dave Himrod and Engineering Manager Steve Kannan in our NYC headquarters on January 30 at 6:30pm.

At AppNexus, we’ve experienced explosive growth over the last three years. This has meant the rapid scaling and iteration of our optimization tools used for big data exploration and aggregations. Unlike other more complicated programming languages, Python’s versatility allows us to use it both for offline analytical tasks as well as production system development. Doing so allows us to bridge the gap between prototypes and production by relying on the same code libraries and frameworks for both, thereby tightening our innovation loop. We’d like to share our best practices and lessons learned when iterating and scaling with Python.

Join us for beers, pizza, and Python!

And of course, the event is free.
