Groupon has employed many processes, philosophies, and technologies during it’s 3+ year growth. At the center of it all has been a Rails-based stack with an immensely rich and useful toolset. Many design patterns, framework enhancements, and Ruby extensions contribute to the resiliency of the application. This presentation will address what worked, what didn’t, and what sort of SOA + Rails approach Groupon will adopt in the near future. Mike Cerna is lead developer at Groupon, having started on the project in April 2007 during it’s formative years as ThePoint.com.
Mike became a software developer in 2003 as the developer at Thinkhost.com. In the years since, he’s been involved with a myriad of West Coast startups that span academia, visual effects, gambling, and even the celebrity/entertainment industries. Mike dabbled in bioinformatics, robotics, and 3d visualization before settling on web application/business development. He is currently a lead developer and domain historian at Groupon.com.
