    Presentation:

    Facebook’s Thrift: Scalable Cross-Language Development

    Thrift is an open source software framework created by Facebook for scalable cross-language development. It combines a powerful software stack with a code generation engine to build services that work efficiently and seamlessly between C++, Java, Python, PHP, and Ruby. Facebook is the 6th most trafficked site on the web, serving over 1 billion pages per day. Behind the scenes, Thrift is used to power RPC communication between Facebook’s internal services, including Search, Mobile, and Platform.



    In this presentation, the creators of Thrift will discuss the project’s motivation, design decisions, results, and lessons learned. More information on Thrift is available at: http://developers.facebook.com/thrift/
