Presented at Ruby Ireland - https://www.meetup.com/rubyireland/events/248735127/

Intercom is still powered by the same Rails application that the founding team started to build seven years ago. In that time it’s grown from a tiny prototype to half a million lines of code, maintained by 80 engineers and deployed 100 times a day. In this talk, we’ll present some of the technologies and practices we use to deal with the ever-increasing scale and complexity at which we operate.
