We are going to use this space to tell you a little about the code and systems that power Facebook. We thought it would be fun to share what goes on behind the scenes to ensure that the site scales smoothly and that we continue to provide the best overall user experience. Expect to see technical details, architecture discussions and maybe even some code samples. You should also stay tuned to find out about ripstiks, daft punk and a lot of other small things that make Facebook Engineering tick.
