An Inspiring Clip on Getting It Done

Time for a quick peek at the medieval internet age of ... 2007. YouTube developer Cuong Do Cuong did this interesting, amusing, and insightful Google Tech Talk mostly focusing on scaling a large application. The fun part that we like is the beginning where he talks a bit about why they used python, and how their scaling plan worked. These details are a bit out of date, as the python world has grown a tremendous amount, but suffice to say that the same kernel of truth holds. Python is fast enough, as most of the work in a web request is done in the database, and speed/accuracy of development is crucial to delivering applications on time and effectively.

Watch Cuong Do Cuong's tech talk on YouTube scalability for a primer on how it's done, or just skip to 2:50 to see his insight on development process in a startup, and 3:30 for his insights on using python.
