  • Hi, chromatic. I work on Delicious, and I've been with the site since before Yahoo! bought it.

    Delicious was not merely migrated. It was redesigned and rewritten from the database up. Several months of development were spent in design and QA (we were in limited beta since September [delicious.com]). The additional forethought and care were warranted since a lot of people rely on us every day.

    Delicious was originally designed for a relatively small number of people. It has been extended, patched, optimized, sharded

    • The languages we chose are the right tools for their respective jobs.

      I don't know your particular constraints, and I'm happy to accept that, but a three year rewrite with an eleven month beta period seems troubled -- unless that was the schedule from the beginning. I very much look forward to a retrospective.
