It's always very interesting to know large companies infrastructure. This talk was very complete and easy to follow, thanks a lot!

always nice to know more about a successful company infrastructure

A comprehensive overview of Uber development effort. +1 for the open source choice!

Very interesting. Thanks for sharing

Very informative and detailed talk about a big (and hyper-growing) organisation took advantage of JavaScript and Node.js. I really loved the fact that dusting underlined that Node.js is not the only way and that they actually prefer Go/Java for some tasks. The only reason why I am giving 4 stars is because I felt the talk was a bit too lengthy and ended up being a bit boring toward the end.

Always nice to see the perspective on development from a large company like Uber.

really interesting, thank you for sharing your experience

It was very interesting to understand how hyper-growing company manages such huge code base and services!

A lot of technical insights in Js @ Uber, well presented

Very fast paced talk with a lot of reading notes, generally informative, but some real examples would of been great

I admire the speaker and the talk was good but: I like hearing things from 1st hand and this overview wasnt that.

Personally, my preference would be to hear this same talk from a person that is working there as a JS developer, talking from experience not white papers even if the person is not as good speaker as Dustin is.

Also, speaker sneaked up more then few 'promotional' details into the talk that had nothing to do with the subject in hand (like how the mobile apps design progressed thru the years, what are all the different products they offer on the web..).

At moments it was visible that too much reading from notes was done.

I guess what you guys are doing is just crazy! But nice talk. Thanks to share your experience on doing things at scale.

A great overview and a lot of tips
