We will tell you how to serve a hundred thousand requests per second, for fun and non-profit


Wikipedia is one of the most visited websites on earth and runs on donations only. All of our infra is in-house to make sure we protect our users' privacy. This is not easy but it's possible.

If you want to know how we do that, come to our talk. We will explain our system architecture, tell you about our database setup, the caching layers, and all the other bits and pieces.
