Trulia's Stack

Sha Hwang (Trulia)
Stack Yerba Buena Salon 12-14

Trulia is churning through millions of datapoints around crime, schools, homes and businesses to help people find a place to live. We’re building our Geo stack on Python, Tilestache, and GeoDjango to deploy this information nationwide and pushing the limits of highly dynamic prototyping with Javascript and Web Workers.
