Our own anonymized & aggregated data analysis for news websites.
That bad boy used a total of 2586 data queries, reading, compiling and caching more than 800tb of numbers in the process.
2019 was the year we decided to dismantle our entire mono-service server architecture to rebuild everything as micro services.
We added a total 276k+ lines of code (and deleted just as many) across all our repositories. And not even one intern was sacrified in the process.
We contributed to more than a dozen open-source repositories, and created a shiny secured & cross-origin iframe messaging utility called Buddy. Please love it.
We pushed more than 8k commits to our GitHub repositories, around 4% of them comming from bots like Renovate or Greenkeeper. All-hail the hypnobots!
We triggered more than 5k CI jobs, or 1,808,141 unit tests if you speak the language of gods. We won't discuss about failed builds here, move along.
