The Boston Globe launched its new subscription site at BostonGlobe.com using advanced techniques of Responsive Design and aspects of HTML 5 to optimize the device for as many screen sizes as possible. In the process, the development team chose Erlang to build its My Saved feature, which allows users to save stories to a queue for reading later or when offline. Moriarty will talk about the overall strategy, why they chose Erlang and Mnesia as the foundation and what they are planning next.

Talk objectives: To show how Erlang helped a publisher build a scaleable Web application

Target audience: Technology managers, product managers, solution architects, developers (though my talk will not be highly technical)
