My name is Kostas Stroggylos and I am a Senior Software Engineer, acting as the tech lead for the team building the Restaurants and Internal Tools at e-food. During the last week of January I had the pleasure of attending the Domain-Driven Design Europe 2019 conference in Amsterdam. It was two exciting days filled with exchanging ideas with practitioners and fellow meetup organizers from all over the world, drawing models with strangers, trying to uncover DDD Borat’s identity, taking sketchnotes and using a lot of post-it notes. Now that the excitement has settled, I want to share some of the highlights and takeaways from this event.
On Thursday, March 7th we marked the end of the second annual Delivery Hero hackathon: DeliveryHack 2019. With nearly 90 participants divided into over 20 teams, it was our largest internal hackathon to date. To get a better impression of DeliveryHack, have a look at our video.
Einstein spent the last 30 years of his life searching for a theory that would unify the universe – the “Theory of Everything”. Such unification would enable us to understand, explain, and potentially manipulate a complex phenomenon composed of multiple forces. We can better understand how parts are interacting together; opening a myriad of applications from time travel to artificial intelligence. At Delivery Hero we did it!
Delivery Hero’s DevOps team was very excited to attend this year’s AWS Summit in Berlin. It was a great opportunity to network with fellow DevOps engineers, potential service partners, and the greater AWS community.
My name is Gabriel Ferreira and I’m working as Senior Principal Systems Engineer at Delivery Hero, leading the Global Logistics Infrastructure Team. In the midst of a cost-cutting project, we asked ourselves: why not run our kubernetes nodes over AWS Spot Instances? Since spots instances are 70% cheaper than on-demand, it would definitely save us some money.
On the 30th of January a group of our backend engineers attended the first GoDays conference in Berlin. As Go is becoming a core technology of our foodora and foodpanda platforms, our group of six backend engineers were excited to meet and mingle with the Go Community, exchange best practices and gain new knowledge.
In this article, we want to share our major takeaways from GoDays Berlin 2019.
