It’s no secret: Walmart’s internet technology hub WalmartLabs is using open source development to help 245 million weekly customers around the world shop Walmart for online, on mobile or in stores. In the past few years, WalmartLabs transformed from buying to building its own e-commerce technology in-house. That included re-building all aspects of its technology stack to rival the best companies and investing in open source technologies like Cassandra, OpenStack and Node.js to name a few. WalmartLabs is also contributing a lot back to the community with products like hapi and mupd8.
For a developer at Walmart, this means they have the freedom to use the open source software that helps them deploy their applications to customers fast. This talk will focus on the technology that’s making this a reality for WalmartLabs:
As senior vice president and chief technology officer of Global e-Commerce at Walmart, Jeremy King leads product, engineering, and the Web Ops teams charged with developing Walmart’s online business on a global scale, as the company moves to the next generation of e-commerce. Jeremy received a B.S. in information technology from San Jose State University.
