Scaling Backbone.js at SoundCloud

SoundCloud has 30 million registered users, 10 hours of audio is uploaded every minute, and since the end of last year has transitioned their entire site to a single page Javascript application using Backbone.js. This didn’t come easy. This video discusses the troubleshooting that went into the implementation for a site with a large, and growing, online community.

This talk is geared towards the developer who is using, or is interested, in Backbone.js. It shows some of the issues faced while re-imagining the site as a single page app, how to address these concerns, and uses examples from the SoundCloud page.
