You can find more information on the speaker's site:


Opera Software is mainly known for its own internet browser, but has also created and it's continuously developing many web sites and services, like the My Opera community, started in 2001 as the official browser support forums.

From then on, the community has grown into a "social network", whatever that means, facing very common scalability problems. The code has been rewritten 3 times from scratch in the past, and the current dev team is now at a turning point.

How to keep the site running smoothly with increasing traffic and users?

This is an updated version (V2) of the talk presented at the Italian Perl Workshop in Sep 2008.
