Title: Mythical Bugs (and where to find them)

Abstract: Production Engineering at Facebook is a hybrid between software and systems engineering. The Production Engineers keep Facebook running smoothly while scaling the infrastructure efficiently by writing code, debugging hard problems on a live production environment that impacts more than 2 billion people around the world. There are lots of interesting challenges (and bugs) for us to solve. This talk will cover a little bit of Facebook’s infrastructure, what is Production Engineering at Facebook, and the role of Production Engineers play in supporting the infrastructure and services that make Facebook and its family of apps work.

Speaker bio: Ryan is a Production Engineering Manager at Facebook. He graduated from UNL back in 2006, and started his career as a systems administrator at the Center for Children, Families and the Law here at UNL. He later became one of the systems administrators at Holland Computing Center supporting the Firefly cluster helping researchers run their code on HCC’s computing resources. In 2012, he joined Facebook as a Production Engineer and various projects helping make parts of Facebook scale reliably and efficiently.
