Happy new year! After many months, busy with the responsive Gumtree project, I wrote another post for our developer blog. This time talking about Hystrix, a Netflix library for application resilience.
When we built the responsive site we wanted to improve the back-end, specially after all the Reactive hype around and the desired properties associated to these systems: resilience, performance, etc. As a result, we decided to integrate Hystrix in our legacy code, and it has paid off. We recommend it, if you have a JVM-based app and calls to external system, use Hystrix. You will thank us later for the advice ;)

As always, feedback via Twitter/Email is more than welcome.
Update: the post was lost when Gumtree moved blog :(
