– [Messaging at Scale at Instagram]( by Rick Branson
– [Python at Netflix]( by Jeremy Edberg, Corey Bertram, and Roy Rapoport
– [Real-time Tracking and Mapping of Geographic Objects]( by Ragi Burhum

A huge thanks to the speakers and conference organizers for making these resources freely available, especially to those of us who were not able to attend the conference.
