With that feature set, it’s no wonder that DynamoDB is especially attractive to “serverless” application developers. After all, a lot of serverless apps start as prototypes, prioritizing speed of delivery and minimal configuration. Why mess with a relational datastore when you don’t even know yet what your final data model is going to look like?

Now for the part you’ve all been waiting for: the numbers. Weekly active users on mobile web have increased 103 percent year-over-year overall, with a 156 percent increase in Brazil and 312 percent increase in India. On the engagement side, session length increased by 296 percent, the number of Pins seen increased by 401 percent and people were 295 percent more likely to save a Pin to a board. Those are amazing in and of themselves, but the growth front is where things really shined. Logins increased by 370 percent and new signups increased by 843 percent year-over-year. Since we shipped the new experience, mobile web has become the top platform for new signups. And for fun, in less than 6 months since fully shipping, we already have 800 thousand weekly users using our PWA like a native app (from their homescreen).
…process CSVs for metadata tagging, aggregate user statistics, send password reset emails, and more. We started with a simple FIFO queue though we upgraded to a priority queue to ensure that time-sensitive operations like sending password reset emails were completed ASAP.
While many people would expect Chromium to drastically slow down the performance or “consume precious RAM” I haven’t experienced any of this in practice and haven’t heard bad feedback from thousands of test users. I guess it isn’t such a big issue if you are used to have the Chrome browser running in background …
Even though code in React Native features was almost entirely shared across platforms, only a small percentage of our app was React Native. In addition, large amounts of bridging infrastructure were required to enable product engineers to work effectively. As a result, we wound up supporting code on three platforms instead of two. We saw the potential fo…
