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.

Eric Bowman ( @ebowman) - VP Architecture @ Gilt.com ( @gilttech)


Topic 1 - You're another Reed College graduate (Steve Jobs, Luke Kaines, etc.). What's unique about that environment that is driving all these tech leaders?

Topic 2 -What does Operations look like behind the scenes at Gilt? How do you coordinate between Sales, Inventory, New Products,etc.

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

Topic 4 -Web-scale companies tend to reference to databases as "infrastructure". What does the database infrastructure look like at Gilt (key-value, scale, performance, resiliency, etc.)?

Topic 5 -What are the popular applications (both user-facing and behind-the-scenes) and how are they architected?  (lots of people still struggle with distributed, micro-services or modular apps vs. monolithic apps)

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.)?

The Integration Zone is brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.  Use CA Live API Creator to quickly create complete application backends, with secure APIs and robust application logic, in an easy to use interface.
