Tuenti Hosts the 7th PHPMad Meetup about Ansible

Posted on 6/26/2014 by Eng. Outreach Committee

As every month, we hosted the 7th PHPMad meeting in the kitchen of our central Madrid office. Moisés Maciá talked about “Gestionando tu infraestructura con Ansible”. Ansible is an open-source software platform for configuring and managing computers. It combines multi-node software deployment, ad hoc task execution, and configuration management.

In addition to PHPMad, we are open to hosting other user groups meetings and talks so, if you’re interested in organising a tech or design-related event, get in touch!

We Hosted the 8th Madrid MySQL User Group Meetup

Posted on 6/06/2014 by Manuel Aróstegui, Principal Systems Engineer

Tuenti hosted the 8th Madrid MySQL User Group meeting where Keith Hollman presented Oracle's strategy and plans for MySQL for both the rest of 2014 and 2015 where Oracle will continue to support and improve MySQL suite.

After that he showed MySQL Cluster general overview and concepts and all the improvements that have been made to it in the last few versions.

Afterwards and with a nice cluster made of RPI a practical demo was done where we could see how MySQL Cluster behaves when a node goes down, or when the Management Node fail.

It was really good to see that Oracle keeps improving MySQL Cluster as it can be a really interesting product for some environments where Replication isn't an option.

GoMad Meetup in the Tuenti Kitchen

Posted on 3/06/2014 by Eng. Outreach Committee

On Tuesday, we had the opportunity to host the latest GoMad meeting at our Gran Via office. This time, Toni Cardenas explored how the relatively new Go language can be used to develop web applications, leveraging the use of its closer-to-the-iron world perspective. Tricks like upgrading HTTP connections to Websocket and handling thousands of connections with real parallelism can be accomplished with just a handful of lines - all this without the typical arguments about coding in C or C++, or the downfalls of other higher level languages and platforms.

It was a great pleasure to have the GoMad group in our offices and we’ll keep track of their future meetings. If you’re also interested in the language and happen to be in the Madrid area, just join their meetup page, and If you are a part of another other group and would like to organize a tech or design-related event, get in touch!
