Our core development team is just a few people. We want more. If you want to be challenged. Are a UX/UI person, Ruby on Rails developer, Front-End developer, even interested in technical support, let me know.
I’ve been following the development of RethinkDB since I first heard about it a few years ago. My excitement over it has only grown over time.
RethinkDB is an open source database that fits somewhere between a relational database like MySQL or PostgreSQL and newer schema-less databases like MongoDB. However, it’s got a few things I don’t think any other database has.
RethinkDB pushes results to your app in real time
Typically, you’d need a separate Publish-Subscribe system in place to do this.
With RethinkDB, you can start a query and request to get changes. Your app will automatically receive any changed data related to your query after that.
If you want something that’s closer to current Publish-Subscribe methods, RethinkDB has you covered there, too, with their repubsub library.
It’s insanely easy to cluster
This is right from their docs.
First, start RethinkDB on the first machine:
$ rethinkdb --bind all
Then start RethinkDB on the second machine:
$ rethinkdb --join IP_OF_FIRST_MACHINE:29015 --bind all
You now have a RethinkDB cluster!
RethinkDB’s web-based console is beautiful
RethinkDB comes with web-based console that most IT departments will want to display on the wall.
I’ve spent a lot of this year talking about Adhearsion and, at a functional level, how Power Home Remodeling Group integrates it into their workflow.
MojoLingo is our partner in regards to all things Adhearsion. And part of that is creating a custom chat client that does things no other chat client can do. And that’s offer things specific to our business that wouldn’t apply to just anyone. It’s about context.
Previously, I mentioned that Power Home Remodeling Group makes around 48,000 calls per day. While a lot of those are no answers or answering machines we still make contact with a lot of people every day.
We record those calls.
If we don’t reach someone, we simply record whether or not we left a message on their machine, or if it was truly a no-answer.
When we do reach someone and talk to them, Adhearsion records it. We do inform the person that we are recoding the call.
When a call hangs up, our Talkbox Adhearsion application sends an API call to our main Nitro application. The path of the audio recording and the home it’s linked to are included so Nitro can put them together into that home’s overall communication history.
