TwitchCon 2016 Day 3 – Surviving Twitch Plays Pokemon: Adventures in Twitch Chat Engineering

Join Senior Software Engineer John Rizzo as he takes you on an adventure through the engineering challenges that accompanied the event that launched Twitch into the mainstream. Twitch Plays Pokemon threatened to bring our chat system to its knees, which risked killing this transformative event dead in its tracks – come hear how the chat team prevented this from happening over the course of a day in an engaging “24”-style story. This talk assumes no software engineering experience, though people with technical backgrounds will still get a lot of out of the talk.
