Meetup Architecture with Yvette Pasqua

Meetup is an online service that allows people to gather into groups and meet in person. Since 2002, the company has been growing and its technology stack has been changing. Today, they are in the process of migrating to the cloud, using both Amazon Web Services and Google Compute Platform.

Yvette Pasqua is the CTO of Meetup and she joins the show to explain how Meetup’s technology stack works and how the teams are organized. The discussion of multiple clouds is particularly interesting–Yvette describes GCP and AWS as both having distinct, well-defined use cases at Meetup.
