Tim Miller – Sr. Director, Engineering at Yahoo – visited Hightail’s Campbell office recently to share some insights about how his company’s photo sharing site Flickr handles images and videos.

As Hightail faces similar challenges with our new creative collaboration platform, Spaces, it was fascinating to learn about Flickr’s process for real-time image resizing and how regional caches have helped dramatically improve image preview load times.

Huge thanks to Tim for taking the time to come see us. Find out more about all things engineering at Flickr at code.flickr.com.
