Jana's consumer-facing product, mCent, has seen 10x growth in daily users in just the last 6 months— with over a quarter million daily active users— and it continues to grow. The Jana tech team will discuss how we've managed this rapid growth across all parts of the technical operations infrastructure, and some of the (many!) lessons we've learned. For a snippet of what to expect, read our latest blog post on scaling our infrastructure to handle our 50x growth in MAU (and server load).
It’s a great opportunity to learn and network while enjoying our awesome view of the Boston Common and State House and snacking on tasty treats from Mei Mei's and choice beverages.
