Hanselminutes Podcast 199 – How Craigslist Works – with Jeremy Zawodny
My one-hundred-and-ninety-ninth podcast is up. I chat with Jeremy Zawodny, a developer at Craigslist on how the system is put together. How many servers do they have? How does it all fit together and what are the major technology problems they have to solve?

Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.
Telerik is our sponsor for this show.
Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It’s very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate aboutTelerik is their commitment tocompleteness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don’t bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It’s nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.
As I’ve said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener’s time. (and make the commute less boring)
Enjoy. Who knows what’ll happen in the next show?
