eSports streaming platform, Bebo, has thousands of servers in 15 AWS Regions and a fully dynamic automatically scaling stack with good uptime. Its servers are also managed by a teenager who can’t yet get a driver’s license. In this talk, listen as Bebo CTO Furqan Rydhan and DevOps engineer Johnny Dallas discuss how 16-year-old Dallas, who graduated from San Francisco’s Drew School two years early, built Bebo’s fully automated infrastructure in two months and finds the time to balance coding with studying for the SATs.
