Event Completed

@Scale is a series of technical conferences for engineers who build or maintain systems that are designed for scale.

This is the first time we are holding Mobile@Scale in Tel Aviv. This conference will focus on building large-scale mobile applications.

A wide range of topics will be covered from efficiency of your tools to efficiency of your team. We will cover techniques that will help you tackle challenges you may encounter when scaling your apps.

@Scale brings thousands of engineers together throughout the year to discuss complex engineering challenges and to work on the development of new solutions. We're committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment — one that encourages collaboration and sparks innovation.

Every @Scale event participant has the right to enjoy his or her experience without fear of harassment, discrimination, or condescension. The @Scale code of conduct outlines the behavior that we support and don't support at @Scale events and conferences. We expect participants to follow these rules at all @Scale event venues, online communities, and event-related social activities. These guidelines will keep the @Scale community a safe and enjoyable one for everyone.

Be welcoming. Everyone is welcome at @Scale events, inclusive of (but not limited to) gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, body size, differing abilities, ethnicity, national origin, language, religion, political beliefs, socioeconomic status, age, color and neurodiversity. We have a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination.

Choose your words carefully. Treat one another with respect and in a professional manner. We're here to collaborate. Conflict is not part of the equation.

Know where the line is, and don't cross it. Harassment, threats, or intimidation of any kind will not be tolerated. This includes verbal, physical, sexual (such as sexualized imagery on clothing, presentations, in print, or onscreen), written, or any other form of aggression (whether outright, subtle, or micro). Behavior that is offensive, as determined by @Scale organizers, security staff, or conference management, will not be tolerated. Participants who are asked to stop a behavior or an action are expected to comply immediately or will be asked to leave.

Don't be afraid to call out bad behavior. If you're the target of harmful or offensive behavior, or if you witness someone else being harassed, threatened, or intimidated, don't look away. Tell an @Scale staff member, a security staff member, or a conference organizer immediately. Please notify our event staff, security staff, or conference organizers of any harmful or offensive behavior that you've experienced or witnessed in any form, whether in person or online.

We at @Scale want our events to be safe for everyone, and we have a zero-tolerance policy for violations of our code of conduct. @Scale conference organizers will investigate any allegation of problematic behavior, and we will respond accordingly. We reserve the right to take any follow-up actions we determine are needed. These include being warned, being refused admittance, being ejected from the conference with no refund, and being banned from future @Scale events.

Don't Miss the Train - Shipping Apps and Beyond

Each day, Facebook is updated with new features, bug fixes and product improvements. Each day, Facebook also ships mobile apps to billions of mobile devices around the world. Coordinating thousands of engineers, hundreds of product changes, and billions of users seems like an impossible task. Over the years, we've developed tools and processes that help us stepping up to our mission of brining the world closer together, without breaking people's experience when we release new versions to them. This is what I want to tell you about.

YOLO Releases Considered Harmful – Running An Effective Mobile Engineering Team

Organisations often worry about their mobile teams. Sometimes they are a bit separate. There’s often this inexplicable hostility to mentions of “React Native”. Why do bug fixes take so long to get to production, and what are all these certificates for, anyway? In this talk we’ll cover the realities of shipping compiled code, the woes of the app stores, and the infrastructure challenges we haven’t figured out yet. You’ll leave with a better understanding of the realities your mobile teams may be struggling with, and some strategies for how to help them – and your organisation – build an effective mobile team that ships regularly. And yes, you’ll finally understand the React Native argument, too.
2:30pm - 3:00pm

Keeping Lite lite – technics for keeping our APK as small as ~1MB

Facebook Lite is a lightweight version of the Facebook App, targeted to emerging markets. We observed that as APK size grows, it's install rates drop, especially in emerging markets where phone resources are low. In this talk we will cover some of our team’s efforts to maintain our APK as small as possible. We’ll discuss the way we approach the problem, projects that we delivered to achieve it and more.
