AWS re:Invent 2016: Bleacher Report Gains Competitive Edge with Elastic Beanstalk (DEV315)

Published on Dec 03, 2016

When you're one of the top sports media sites on the internet, you deal with scale like no other. Bleacher Report and its Team Stream app enable millions of users to access their own personalized view of sports. In this session, we'll talk about how we broke up the monolith into microservices and how Elastic Beanstalk empowered us to move quickly. Learn how a small Ops team provided a world-class build/release pipeline by standing on the shoulder of giants (AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Jenkins, and Docker). This session is designed for those who want to get up and running as quickly as possible, but are uncompromising in their ownership of infrastructure. We'll discuss the reasoning behind our switch from fully managing our own infrastructure to a managed service, including some advanced customizations made possible through AWS CloudFormation and AWS Elastic Beanstalk configuration files (.ebextensions).
