Tock is changing the way restaurants, wineries, and culinary event organizers run their business across the globe. We process $250MM annually through our platform and we constantly have to deal with high volume reservation launches. This talk focuses on how we built this platform entirely on Open Source, using a ton of Apache technologies on top of Google Cloud VMs & Containers. This is a story of the time we handled the reservation launch for one of the famous restaurant in the world, talking about scale challenges and behind the scenes look at the work that goes into building a high performance cloud agnostic reservation and payment system.
