  12. 12. Technology choices for speed ● Anti Not Invented Here Syndrome (re-use is king) ● Linux (Debian/Ubuntu) for servers ● Hosted at Amazon EC2 + Liquid Web ● Ruby On Rails for platform / API ● MySQL + Sphinx for search ● WordPress and PHP for distributed views ● jQuery + CSS framework (more from Frank later) ● TRAC for subversion + tickets + wiki
  13. 13. Sea dogs / dev team ● Colin Surprenant – Lead Engineer ● Marc-André Gagnon – Platform/API developer ● Stéphane Daury – Wordpress + PHP guru ● François Lafortune – Front-end developer ● Many freelancers from Montréal (Station C)++ ● And a secret zombie army (more on that later) ● Interview process is a few weeks... write some code, close some tickets, ask good questions.
  14. 14. The secret zombie army Open Source developers from all over the world!
  15. 15. No Quarters! ● Architecture is art/science, keep right balance ● Have test to cover at least 80% of the codebase ● Automated deploy, FTW! ● Ship at least once per week, twice sometimes ● Milestones, tickets, priorities, review each week ● Standup meeting every morning ● Almost no meetings. Wiki pages, BRD, frankendoc, white boards, giant post-it
  16. 16. Open Standards for uplift ● A few choices : Microformats, OAuth, OpenWeb ● Timing, community, maturity (almost) ● Make sure your stuff is easy/documented ● Open means letting a little bit go ● Open means being in many places (Google Code, WordPress.org) ● Open also mean being out there (like tonight) ● Open mean you can start now! http:/ /praizedmedia.com/en/api
