CartoDB is a geospatial database product for data visualization. Powered on its core by PostgreSQL and PostGIS (and being open source itself), it empowers more than 45K users (including Twitter, Wall Street Journal, and BBVA) to analyze, visualize, and develop web applications with their data.
But if serving more than 10 million map tiles everyday has its own set of problems, making them completely dynamic and alterable by users (from styling, to the data sources and the SQL queries applied to them) turns out to be, development and operationally speaking, an infinite source of challenges, some of which we will expose on this session.
