Sessions / Jobs
For every 15 minutes
Hello! My name is Faraaz Sareshwala and I am a software engineer at Twitter in San Francisco. At twitter, I work on difficult problems such as networking, load balancing, service discovery, etc. Before Twitter, I was one of the core engineers at Quantcast where I helped scale their big (massive) data infrastructure from less than 100,000 requests per second to over two million requests per second. I lead the design and development of our distributed key value store, distributed event replication system, and distributed file system. This work was almost all done in C++ and Java.
