Michael Tucker on Multitenancy in Spree:
In this session Michael will show how GoDaddy dealt with multi-tenancy in their Spree-based Rails eCommerce application and the challenges they faced with ActiveRecord.
When GoDaddy set out to reinvent its ecommerce offering, we considered a wide range of solutions and compared a plethora of open source offerings. Spree stood out in this analysis as a flexible platform with solid overall performance and a world-class community. We not only believe Spree is the strongest open source ecommerce offering out there, we’re betting our future on it. Scaling out the single-store design of Spree into a multi-tenant, high performance ecosystem of small-medium business storefronts has posed a complex set of challenges, and we aim to harness those lessons to give back to the Spree community. Our solutions have ranged from utilizing Apartment for multi-tenant account switching, to the Liquid template engine for flexible storefront theming, to custom integrations with best-of-class feature providers.
The group meets at 6:30pm on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at SocialWhirled
