Instagram never would have sold to Facebook for $1 billion this week if its back-end tech had not been able to scale to 35 million users in under two years.The main reason Facebook bought Instagram was that Facebook’s photo-sharing experience on mobile was slow and painful in comparison.
Yesterday, at a tech talk at another start-up (AirBnB), Instagram co-founder Mike Krieger gave a presentation about how his team managed that feat.
The presentation is loaded with tech jargon, but even for us non-tech types, it presents a fascinating narrative about the challenges behind going from nothing to something huge so fast.
