Cambridge, Massachusetts. 1971. A US programmer named Ray Tomlinson made history. Being part of the ARPANET project, he was the first person in the World to send an email. The first email. 45 years later, and after a lot of attempts to “kill the system”, the email is alive. Maybe, more alive than ever before.
We’re happy to announce a new one day workshop (#WorkshopsWeLove). This time, the workshop will be focus on Prometheus, an open-source service monitoring system and time series database. It provides monitoring out of the box, a multi-dimensional data model, a flexible query language, instrumentation and powerful and smart alerts.
To be honest, we tend to focus more on the marketing side of growth, and less on the other half – analytics. We can plan and execute dozens of campaigns but we won’t learn anything from that work if we’re not ready to track our results accurately. Ultimately, this means that our decisions can potentially be very wrong.
“One Daily, One Topic” is the group of posts where we’ll share the topics that we talk during the lasts sprints. Besides, our Director of Engineering, Félix López, will comment why they’ve selected these papers and the link to find them. You can also follow the engineering team in Twitter at @ShuttleCloudEng.
Differences between Graphs that Manage Connections on the Internet
“The global mapping of everybody and how they’re related.” With these words, the famous programmer Brad Fitzpatrick defined a concept that has become one of the most important elements in the short story of the Internet: the social graph.
Few months before, during the first edition of the Facebook Developer Conference (Facebook F8), Mark Zuckerberg had attributed the power of Facebook to the “social graph, the network of connections and relationships between people on the service.” Eight years later, the Facebook social graph (The Graph API) is one of the biggest… but it isn’t alone.
The engineering team of ShuttleCloud has started a new habit during the daily meetings. The day before, a member of the team proposes a technical paper or article that should be reading for the rest of the team. The next daily, they talk over the technical paper. Analyzing what they’ve learned or if they have some doubts.
From ShuttleCloud, we wish you a Happy Halloween 2015!
EmailMeter.io’s MVP is ready to use. It’s online. As a good MVP, many things can be improved, new metrics will be added, and more details will be analyzed when we receive user feedback. We are very proud, however, that we have a first version online and ready to test by the user.
