Join us at RAMP in Budapest this July and learn from those who have been in the trenches of building highly scalable backend systems.

RAMP will feature engineers and tech founders talking about the race against exploding traffic, architectures that didn’t cut it, and all that goes into scaling systems and engineering teams when a product goes from 1 to 100m users. The goal is to showcase best practices, warn against potential pitfalls, and learn how to start building systems that will be easy to scale from the beginning.

Each day will also include open spaces sessions that will allow attendees to join in the discussion, share stories, get feedback, and learn from others.

Who should attend?

This conference is for those who want to go beyond just creating "minimal viable products" but MVPs that scale beyond expectations. From engineers who are responsible for creating those scalable systems to founders looking for how to architect their systems and teams for growth. We expect an audience interested in intense technical topics alongside social solutions to the growing pains that come with an accelerating user base.

Why have such an event?

New companies always face scaling issues, but they don't always have the knowledge they need to overcome them. We want RAMP to provide that knowledge. Rather than talk about how companies such as Google and Facebook scale their systems today, we want to talk about what they did in their first three years. We want to talk about architectures, infrastructure patterns that work and those that don't, as well as scaling the engineering team itself. We want people to share what worked for them and what didn't.

Ultimately, we'll learn from each other-both what we've done well and how we've screwed up.
