4 Facebook Employees Built A Working Demo Of Facebook Timeline In One Night

Rome wasn’t built in a day, but Timeline was. What now allows hundreds of millions to tell the story of their lives started as an all-night Hackathon project in 2010. 2 brave Facebook engineers, an intern, and a designer cobbled together a working prototype that a year later would become Facebook’s flashiest redesign. A Note published today by Facebook’s engineering team details how the project was split into five teams who worked in parallel to develop a scalable way to recall anything ever posted to Facebook.
