Here's What Reddit Users Said about NextQueue, Our Neo4j Project
Here’s the reality: Netflix can only recommend media to you from what they have available. The same goes for Hulu and Amazon Prime. But because NextQueue brings together all your online services, it has the advantage of a larger catalog of titles to recommend from.

React Native at SoundCloud
約1年前、私たちはSoundCloudで面白い質問に直面しました:React Nativeを使用して、クリエイター向けのSoundCloud Pulseを作成できますか? 5ヵ月前の技術は、SoundCloudのテクノロジースタックの一部に成熟するほど成熟していますか?

この質問の数ヶ月前に、私たちはAndroidとiOS向けの2番目のネイティブアプリを設計し始めました。 最初はiOSに焦点を当てました。なぜなら、これはクリエイターの大部分がいたからです。 iOSエンジニアを見つけることは、私たちが思っていたよりも困難であることを証明しました。 Androidの場合、Novodaと提携しました。 私たちは、iOSとAndroidのリリースの間に数ヶ月を望んでいませんでした。 一方、独立して、設計チームはReact Nativeベースのプロトタイプでユーザーテストセッションを実行していました。また、非常に熱心なWebエンジニアの能力もありました。

How Belly Scales Using API Proxies with their Microservices Architecture: Interview with Darby Frey | Heroku
We started looking at external tools for API management, such as 3scale, Mashery, and Apigee. We ended up going with Apigee, which offers a nice customizable tool called “Edge.” It’s an environment where we can build a proxy layer that sits on top of our app stack.
Unlike our Ruby proxy service, Apigee Edge does a better job at taking a response and transforming it before sending it to the client. We can make parallel requests from Apigee to our backend services, take all those responses, mash them up, and create appropriate response payloads for the consumer. We define the mashup logic in JavaScript, and Apigee also allows us to share it across proxies, so in many cases we can DRY up our code at that level. We use that feature quite a bit.

Lessons Learned: The First Two Years of Running a Software Consultancy
This is an update of the previous post that reflected on the first six months of DockYard. A lot has changed over the past year and a half, and a lot has not. I won't do a point-by-point comparison to the previous post but I will address some as well as some of the feedback I got at the time. But first, let's talk about revenue.
