Why we Love and Sponsor Benthos

We love Open Source here at Meltwater, and like most modern software companies, we would not be able to operate without it.

One project that we are especially fond of is Benthos, “the stream processor for mundane tasks”. In this post we share how our relationship with Benthos started, how we are using it, and why we decided to become an official sponsor of Benthos.

Truth Discovery in Practice — Aggregating Conflicting Datasources

If one source says Microsoft’s headquarter is in Seattle, and another source has it in San Francisco, how do we determine which one is more plausible? The literature calls this the truth discovery or veracity problem.

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 underthehood.meltwater.com. 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.
