The second Computer Science Colloquium of the semester will be held on Friday, October 24. Mr. Matthew Tom-Wolverton (TCNJ ’10) of Tumblr will give a talk entitled “Behind the Scenes at Tumblr”. An abstract of his talk can be found below.
Please join CS faculty and students in Education Building 113 from 12:30 – 1:30 PM for this talk. Pizza and refreshments will be provided.
Curious about what it’s like to work on a site that has millions of users every day? I’ll give you a peek into life at Tumblr, my experiences scaling our advertising, and some of the other things I’ve done and learned here, as well as the journey of how I wound up here in the first place.
From the early days programming BASIC on an Atari 800XL, to his college years (TCNJ Class of ’10!), to currently leading the Ads Engineering team at Tumblr, Matthew has always had a passion for building cool stuff. His tools of choice include PHP, vi, and the Canon 6D. http://wolf.tw/
