this website Manteresting is a Pinterest for Men site that I co-founded. The site was initially built in Python/Django. I lead the development team of six members during the initial build and have continued to develop and maintain the site as the CTO since launch in February of 2012.
http://misterpaulsenglish.com/category/student/page/8/ Manteresting’s initial stack was Python/Django, MySQL and Apache on CentOS 6. Soon after launch, the site got hammered with traffic and we quickly had to scale. The stack now includes Nginx, distributed Memcached servers and a Varnish caching system to keep things running smooth.
