As we’re past Halloween and now rolling into the final stretch of the year, it’s a good time to look back on a few highlights in 2014. So far we’ve had 8 meetups, a total registered attendance of 505 members across meetups and 7 sponsors. Now admittedly, not every single registered attendee turned up to each actual meetup. But judging by the amount of pizza wolfed down plenty of them did! So here we take a look at one of the companies who have made the pizza happen - sponsoring the meetup time and time again – thank you Qstream.
Though you’re probably more interested in what their engineers think. They’re raving about what’s perking their interest at the moment - mining giant sets of data, gamifying enterprise apps, building the smarts into the Qstream coaching engine and moving towards microservices. They’re a Rails based shop and have their hands in the familiar such as MySQL and Unicorn, as well specific tools for specific jobs – calling upon Postgres, Redis and Node. And they are looking for fresh blood to join their team.
Speaking of fresh blood, hope ye all had a good Halloween. Now go and change your desktop background back to something more sensible and get back to your hackin’. Until the next free pizza…
