  • Golang

    #<User:0x00007f94d0a0a890> Clever

    We're huge fans of Go. We've been porting code into Go for performance and correctness reasons, and most new development is done in Go.

  • Docker

    #<User:0x00007f94d0e48c18> Clever

    We use Docker everywhere. Every new service is built in Drone into a Docker image and pushed to our Dockerhub tagged with the git hash. We can then have full confidence we are deploying the exact version of any service.

  • PagerDuty

    #<User:0x00007f94ce21c338> Clever

    Luckily we don't end up actually using this much, but we couldn't live without it.

  • Slack

    #<User:0x00007f94d0f0f3b8> Clever

    We switched from Slack to Hipchat and have been very happy - we no longer have issues when connecting and disconnecting from our VPN, and robust editing of previous messages is a useful feature.
