We, the Kickstarter engineering team, are happy to announce our latest migration: our engineering blog, from self-hosted to Medium.
In 2013 we launched our blog to share our creativity, our mistakes, and our open source projects. We’ve had many great posts and discussions thus far, and today we move to Medium to engage more deeply with the community.
For individuals and engineering teams alike, Medium provides a clean and easy way to publish, read, and share ideas. We are excited to make our new home as the Kickstarter Engineering blog, formerly known as Backing and Hacking. Our old posts have made it here safe and sound, and we cannot wait to continue sharing and engaging with you.
In fact, here are two new posts for you already! Read about our journey to open sourcing our native apps and how we leverage functional programming and AWS lambda to drive ChatOps.
