Description: Brian talks with Eric Bowman (@ebowman, VP of Architecture at Gilt, @gilttech) about the evolution from monolithic apps to scaleable micro-services. They discuss how to manage scale, how they manage deployments across internal, managed and public clouds. They discuss when to open-source a project and how to engage with open-source communities.

Topic 3 - What is "at scale" at Gilt and where have the breaking points been?

Topic 6 -When does Gilt decide it's a good idea to open-source projects or concepts? How does that factor into your ability to recruit & hire talent?

Topic 7 - What are the new people at Gilt asked to learn, or where are the interesting areas of learning - both in applications and data (real-time, Hadoop, etc.)?
