The End Result
The combination of IronMQ and IronWorker has saved Untappd hundreds of hours of development time and greatly increased their ability to release new features and build new capabilities. It has also given them a very reliable and scalable processing framework. Untappd just pushes events to IronMQ and the Iron.io platform takes care of everything else. The Untappd team can concentrate on building their app and serving their customers, plus they get to relax on even their busiest nights.
“For a small development team and as someone who wants to enjoy their Friday and Saturday nights, I like that I don’t have to worry about whether to scale more servers. It’s done automatically by Iron.io, which is key for us and obviously why we love the platform.”
– Greg Avola, CTO & Co-Founder, Untappd
