This year’s conference is going to be the best yet, and we’re incredibly happy to be able to take part.
We’re incredibly confident in our ability to scale to serve all of the visitors to your awesome blogs.
We hit an incredibly difficult problem with the way the Queue processes handle their publishing step that forced us to unwind and rewrite a big chunk of our publishing routine.
We’re incredibly moved by the events happening across North Africa and the Middle East, especially the recent images, videos and commentary we’ve seen on Tumblr about Egypt.
We want you to know that we’re still right in the thick of the most comprehensive re-architecting our infrastructure has ever been through, and while you might still hit some bugs or errors this month, our incredibly capable team is working 24/7 to keep your blogs fast and stable.
To deal with the overwhelming volume of content that makes most real-time search incredibly unwieldy, we’ve developed a clustering engine that lets you quickly filter the 650,000 new Tumblr posts created every day, based on likes and reblogs.
Not only are these guys remarkable developers, they have an incredibly inspiring vision for building consumer products, and we couldn’t wait to start working with them on the next suite of Tumblr/iPhone features.
