The 20 Coffees Project: Tanis Jorge

Do you remember your first kindergarten craft? Was it macaroni? Papier maché? Macramé? Mine was a modified version of crochet that I’ll refer to here as faux-crochet (at least there weren’t sparkles). Despite my young age, I remember the lifecycle of that project. Ideation. Production. Anxiety. Presentation. Accomplishment. There were critical decisions to be made at every turn. Red yarn or purple? Short stitch or long? How do I even Read More...

Better logging of startup failures

Something is going to break Failures happen. Especially in complex systems with lots of dependencies. We try our best to design our systems with that in mind. We run a lot of short lived instances on AWS, and when something goes wrong those instance can be very short lived. If a new instance fails to startup correctly due to a transient failure outside the instance, or something broken with a code deployment. AWS auto-scaling terminates the instance Read More...

Making CSS Fit at Unbounce

Remember those days when we stuffed our faces with whatever could be found in mom’s cupboards with no repercussions? We were so young and our poor bodies could handle whatever we threw at it: pizza pops, a tray of oreos, bowl of chips, half of pan of rice krispie squares, loads and loads of css declarations.

Our curvy road to Clojure

The Clojure language is spreading like wildfire at Unbounce. We just had three people attending Clojure West and being indoctrinated with the latest and greatest news about this language and its ecosystem. So we’re very serious about it! But this commitment didn’t happen overnight: it took us a while and some experiments (at times painful) to come to the conclusion that Clojure was the right tool for us.
