Migrating an application and engineering team to a new programming language is major challenge and a significant investment. Zack Tollman will discuss the journey of transitioning WIRED.com and its engineering team from WordPress to a Node/React based stack. During this talk, you will hear how an engineering team worked to overcome the obstacles of learning a new programming language, adapting to a service oriented architecture, and muddling through the shift to an “isomorphic” application.
Zack Tollman is newly minted Application Performance Architect for Condé Nast, following a three-year stint leading engineering for WIRED.com. Wherever there is a site performing poorly, you’ll find him buried in a timeline trying to figure out why. When he steps away from the computer, it’s likely to play hockey or listen to music.
