SXSW 2013: Keep Austin Weird and Learn to Build Scalable Software

Are you heading to SXSW this year? Everyone from techies to groupies will be migrating to Austin, Texas, March 8th-17th, for the Interactive, Film, and Music conferences.

Whether you’re an engineer or a business pioneer with a plan, the workshops during the Interactive conference have a lot to offer as you think about the next steps for your project. Make time in your schedule for an in-depth lesson from Ticketfly’s Platform Architect, Andrew Headrick on Monday, March 11th, from 9:30am-1:30pm on the UT-Austin campus.

Here at Ticketfly, Headrick leads the team that builds our fast, scalable ticketing and marketing platform. At SXSW he’ll be sharing the low-down on how the lessons he learned along the way can help your system grow. Make sure you RSVP now (required for entry) so you get a front-row seat. Here’s a small taste from the workshop abstract:

While Non-Blocking IO, Asynchrony, Parallelism, Data denormalization, NoSql, and the Cloud may be mysterious concepts, modern tools, frameworks, and languages have made these much easier to exercise and apply to scalable systems.

Will you be enjoying an extended stay in Austin for the Music conference as well? Beautiful. Check out Ticketfly’s CMO Gannon Hall discussing “Rogue Ticketing” with the Windish Agency‘s Sam Hunt, Key Music Management Ltd.’s Richard Jones, ACL Live‘s Sharilyn Mayhugh, and Topspin‘s Bob Moczydlowsky on Friday, March 15th from 3:30-4:30pm.

Stay tuned for more announcements about Ticketfly’s presence at SXSW this year.
