The Fellowship of the Stream - A Guild Meeting in Berlin

In early November our Front-end Guild hosted a workshop in Berlin. 13 engineers from offices around the world, met with our Application Framework team, to build a new framework-agnostic component library for our application teams.

In this post, we explain how the Front-end Guild is helping Meltwater to break through team silos, and why and how we are using StencilJS to build a reusable front-end component library that our developers will love.

A Simple Tech Stack for your Engineering Blog

For quite a while I am maintaining the Engineering blog for Meltwater at What flew under the radar for a number of years as a side project, is now pushing out multiple blog posts every month, and is helping the company both externally and internally. The blog attracts 50k unique page views per year, so it looks like the content we share is useful for the readers.

This post shares the tech stack we use, and the editing process we apply when releasing blog posts. If you want to start an Engineering blog at your company, this post may help you.

New Hampshire Volunteer Day #1

A sea of yellow shirts made its way around Manchester as the New Hampshire Meltwater office volunteered for a day with a local organization, Families in Transition. When the volunteer committee first started planning this day, we never imagined how smoothly it would go, or how much fun we’d have! Impacting our local community, strengthening team bonds, and having fun! All in a day’s work.

In this post we are sharing how this event unfolded, and what your office or team can do to organize a volunteering day of your own.
