Rebuilding Reddit


Rebuilding Reddit


Reddit is home to the most authentic conversations on the internet. As of 2018, Reddit's popularity has surged to 330 million monthly active users in spite of a UX largely unchanged for a decade. This year, the company launched its first major redesign to make Reddit a more welcoming place for all. 
In his session, Chris Slowe, CTO and Founding Engineer of Reddit, will tell the story of how Reddit was built - and rebuilt - to enable its teams to scale rapidly and unveil its much-anticipated redesign. He will share the process and philosophy of Reddit's new UX, reflect on the community's feedback, and offer advice from developing and designing hand-in-hand with arguably the internet's most vocal, opinionated users.
