BBC Online: Architecting for Scale with the Cloud and Serverless

During the 2020 US Presidential Election, BBC Online served video, audio, and text to over 140 million users. Events like this require the BBC’s sites and apps to be at their very best – fast, reliable, and relevant at massive scale. It’s been achieved with a modern, cloud-native architecture that’s dependable and scalable. In this talk we’ll dive into this architecture, to understand how BBC Online works. We’ll discuss resilience, caching, error handling, cloud costs, and more. And we’ll take a particular look at how the architecture utilises serverless, both to help with scaling, and to speed up development.

Panel: Event Driven Architectures of Scale

Event-driven architectures (EDA) have been around for decades but are back in vogue, driven in part by the shift to the cloud and multicore architectures, data-driven applications, and related trends such as microservices and distributed computing.  

Our expert panel will explore what we’ve learned as an industry about event-driven architectures over the decades, the advantages - both business and technical - that EDA offers, and thoughts for the future with a particular focus on messaging and Serverless systems. Likely topics include dealing with complexity, debugging/troubleshooting, and common day 2 issues.
