The road to a richer web experience is full of dead ends and wrong turns. This session will cover the mistakes made and lessons learned building SlideShare.net. I will discuss how we interweave Flash and Ajax to create a compelling user experience for SlideShare. I'll talk about the shortcuts we took building the initial version of the site, and how they came back to bite us later. Most of all I will talk about scaling the front end - how the use of rich web technologies changes as one goes from a newly launched app to hundreds of thousands of daily users.
