  1. Stories and techniques for evolving architectures: architectures are never finished and rarely perfect from the start. They are constantly evolved from business needs and constraints. 
  2. Building a SaaS for developers involves challenges related to trust that are different from consumer products. There are techniques that can be used to achieve your customers' trust: building multi region, multi  AZ architectures, doing reliable deployments, using tap compare for database changes, etc.


Auth0 provides "Identity as a Service" for developers. Since its creation in 2013 we have on-boarded thousands of customers in multiple geographies, gone from processing 0 to multiple billions of logins per month, and become a unicorn.
This success and exponential growth brought on some interesting challenges: how to provide a great developer experience, and a secure, reliable and fast platform while preventing breaking changes and API abuse?
In this session we'll go over Auth0's architecture, the challenges that have surfaced over the years and how we solved them. We will discuss multi-AZ, multi-region architectures, our deployment techniques, how we scale intensive CPU operations like password hashing and more.
