From First Round Capital and startups Perceptual Networks and DuckDuckGo comes Philly Tech Talks, a series of free talks for engineers with a specific focus: how do you scale a product?

Philly Tech Talks hopes to create a space for engineers to learn about scaling products on a large level, says co-organizer and Perceptual Networks cofounder Cheyenne Ehrlich, who himself has scaled web properties to 30 to 40 million users, he says. [Updated, see below] Ehrlich says this kind of education seemed to be missing in Philly.

The first event, which is already sold out, will host Luke Rajlich, co-creator and former CTO of Farmvilleon Nov. 10. Next up will be Tikhon Bernstam, cofounder of Parse and Scribd.

Sign up for the waiting list here. Those on the waiting list will be the first to hear about the second event, which has not been scheduled yet.

Most of the speakers will be from out-of-town, Ehrlich says, because there aren’t too many local engineers with experience scaling at such a large level. (Though hopefully, this could change that.)

Ehrlich also stresses that the talks will be highly technical and will probably go over the heads of non-engineers.

Updated 11/6/12 9:38 a.m. to reflect that Ehrlich has scaled web properties to 30 to 40 million users, not 30 to 40 billion users.
