Backend engineer Yury Smolsky explains how he built Meerkat. Meerkat is an alerting software, developed by Meltwater, that integrates tightly with Graphite.
Hallo! Hello! Merhaba! I am Hans, happily married to a beautiful Turkish wife, and live in Berlin since 2002. Born in Singapore as half German, half Filipino, I have since then travelled through various countries over the years until I ended up where I am right now: Berlin! And since the very first weekend I came to this city I have fallen in love: open-minded people, come-as-you-are, multi-cultural, a vibrant electronic music scene, a wide variety of recreational/green areas, cheap & great food!
In July 2014, Meltwater decided to hold its first ever Innovation Day, called meltwhatever day!
The goal of the Innovation Day was to take some time and let our engineers focus their energy on something of their own choosing – something that they were passionate and excited about, that was important or meaningful, and where they felt they could make an impact for themselves, their team, Meltwater, or in some cases, just take a little time to experiment with something new.
To everybody who attended our Meltwater Tech Talk about appium in Berlin yesterday: Thank you. To the rest: Where have you been? :) This post lists further references about appium that were promised during the talk.
