What are we standing on?
That would have been my first question when landing on Miller's planet in Interstellar. Here is how we answer it for our little world of weBounty.
At weBounty, we're proud of the foundation we've established since starting the project almost half a year ago. One part in particular, and the subject of this post, is the technical side of weBounty. We are excited to be working with some of the latest tools available to developers. By doing our research first and building on open source software, we were able to get weBounty up and running faster than we expected. There is still a lot more to do, certainly, but we completed a bounty this last weekend, and 5 months ago there was no bounty platform to speak of! Some parts will evolve further; For example, we are currently migrating to AWS, and updating to Django 1.8 soon after.
Our technology stack so far is as follows:
That's all for now. I'll drop some more techno-babble in the coming weeks!
