|foursquare.com now basically all on Lift||harryh||11/17/09 12:16 PM|
I've been a bit coy about it on the list, but three months ago when I
joined the team at foursquare.com I made the final decision that we
would port our webservers to Scala/Lift. It took about 3 months, but
foursquare.com is now basically running only on Lift(1). This
includes the website, a mobile website (m.foursquare.com) and a simple
(but growing!) REST api (api.foursquare.com).
I'd like the send a huge thank you to dpp and the rest of the Lift
team. You've built a really great framework here, and I look forward
to using it and seeing it grow for many years to come. An additional
thanks goes out to all those who have answered my many random
questions over the past couple of months.
For those who haven't yet found out about foursquare, you can read
more about it here: http://foursquare.com/learn_more
Anyways, that's about enough self promotion, but I did want to
officially let the community know about what I hope will be a fairly
high profile site that is using Lift.
(1) Haven't quite ported feeds.foursquare.com, and there is a legacy
PHP based REST api that will live on for a bit longer as it supports
current versions of our iPhone app.

Great to hear Harry!
When you get a chance, maybe write up your experience doing the port.

I've been MIA from the Lift community recently, but I've gotta say I love Foursquare and use it almost every day. It gives me even more warm fuzzies to know that it's using Lift under the hood :)
Thanks for a great app!

I heard Scala/Lift speed is very good. How many req/s can the old and
the new system process?
