Before Marco and Balasz both joined Facebook, they would read all these absurd news and stories about Android development at Facebook. Crazy, unnecessary, overcomplicated hacks everywhere... they knew better... well... with an inside perspective it turns out they are not so crazy after all (for the most part at least).

Facebook engineering is all about scale. Marco and Balasz will introduce you to their development processes and sometime unintuitive or unorthodox technical solutions to cope with their unique scale of users, engineers and codebase.
