What is Production Engineering and Software Engineering at Facebook and how do the roles complement one another?
Production Engineers at Facebook are hybrid software/systems engineers who ensure that Facebook's services run smoothly and have the capacity for future growth. They are embedded in Facebook's product and infrastructure teams, and are core participants in every significant engineering effort underway in the company. Ryan Lim (Production Engineer) and Victor Loh (Software Engineer) will be giving us a short talk about the two roles and how they work together to solve some challenging problems on their Messenger team and at Facebook as a whole.
Of course there will be food and swag for those in attendance!
