Chartbeat's CTO, Allan Beaufour, came to speak at Yipit HQ about how his company uses Django to power chartbeat.com.
Allan presented how Chartbeat uses Django to power chartbeat.com and run through specific modules/tricks in use and talked about how Puppet is used to maintain, not just the web servers, but the general infrastructure.
This talk was the third talk of the Yipit Django Speaker Series. The Django Speaker Series is an ongoing series of talks organized and sponsored by Yipit that runs in parallel to our usual monthly meetings.
Yipit (yipit.com) runs a large Amazon Web Services infrastructure using the latest technology including: MongoDB, Nginx, jQuery, Gunicorn and of course Django. We are strong believers in continuous integration and rapid deployment (at least daily) and are constantly looking to improve the way we design, develop, deploy and maintain our platform. That is why we created the Yipit Django Speaker Series.
