A timer is a cornerstone of any software that communicates over the network. There are plenty of implementations that provide a timer facility. Most of them are in memory and will lose scheduled timers should the application crash. In this blog we discuss durable Kafka timers that do not depend on in memory state.

I have always struggled with company HR policies that make me not feel trusted. Why don’t HR and/or management trust who they hire? Why create HR processes for the very few people who don’t behave?

In short, this means providing API access to a subscription’s telecom functionality (messaging, calling, etc). In this article we will show how we built VoiceBox, a Voicemail forwarding application.
