Yahoo Homepage and Verticals Open House

Ever wonder how often we release the Yahoo Homepage? Or how big a speed boost Yahoo Sports gets by doing Edge-side Assembly?  Curious to hear the tricks we use to keep CSS bloat free and forward-compatible with things we haven’t even dreamed up yet?

You’re in luck! Our engineering teams are hosting a casual evening mixer with food, drinks, tech talks, and in-depth breakout sessions.

Topics for this Open House are:

  • Shipping code super-fast at massive scale – How we build, test, and release the Yahoo Homepage.
  • Edge-side Assembly, Caching, and Resiliency – How Yahoo Sports cut their TTFB and improved site-up.
  • Stencil UI/UX – How we are using the principles of Atomic CSS and standard design patterns to keep page weight down and stay “forward-compatible”.

Come hang out, talk some tech, and have a good time with us.

Yahoo has plenty of on-campus free parking and is conveniently located near two VTA stations.

See you soon!
